The limits and challenges of mutual trust and mutual recognition in light of scientific uncertainty: Swedish perspectives on standards of care and paediatrics 

Santa’s research project focuses on regulating the standards of medical care in a challenging legal reality, with a particular focus on scientific uncertainty and paediatrics. Along with the internationalization and Europeanization of health law, regulating standards of care has become increasingly challenging. Currently, the Member States’ of the EU, such as Sweden’s, possibilities to regulate questions that pertain to the quality of paediatric care are constrained by its external commitments, in particular, in the area of human rights (notably, the UN and Council of Europe) and EU law. Accounting for the legal pluralism and considerable constraints to the national regulatory autonomy in the area of health law, this research examines the interplay between free movement and the national regulatory autonomy in the area of medical law. In scrutinizing the quality and regulation of the scientifically challenged health-related services, this research project through the perspective of Sweden’s sovereignty examines the national internal and external requirements in Sweden and compares them with selected other EU Member States.

Research

Further to the engegement in the primary research project, Santa continues to research in the area of health and genetic data protection, data transfers between the EU and third countries and international organizations, as well as ELSI in genetics and genomics, and human rights in health care.
