Nordic Health Law in a European Context: Welfare State Perspectives on Patients' Rights and Biomedicine
Elisabeth Rynning, Mette Hartlev
Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, Dec 21, 2011 - Law - 312 pages
This anthology aims to provide Nordic perspectives on the young and evolving field of health law – or biomedical law – by reflecting on issues that have been explored within the activities of the Nordic Network for Research in Biomedical Law. In the emergence of this fairly new legal discipline, it has become very clear that the Nordic region forms a part of Europe that has been strongly influenced by both hard and soft law initiatives from the European Union and the Council of Europe, but also that Nordic identity, culture, and collaboration clearly remain an important factor in the legal development of this particular region.
