Le corti supreme in Svezia: Da funzionari amministrativi a giudici “veri”?
Supreme courts in Sweden: From civil servants to “real” judges?
This work evaluates the political, legal, and stricto sensu administrative reasons behind the Swedish case, namely the idea of the supreme courts not as independent actors but rather as incorporated within the public administration. However, a recent trend shifts the position of the supreme courts within the Swedish constitutional architecture closer to a more judicial core, i.e. a body with the primary duty of defending and safeguarding the law also against the executive and legislative powers.
Keywords: Supreme Courts; Sweden; Welfare state; Separation of powers; Constitutional system.
