Effects of European Law - on the Transformation of Politics in Legislation Processes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


When discussing the transformation of politics into law in today’s society it is impractical to leave out the factual aspect of the immense interference of international law in the process. In this paper I will refer to European law that has a special position being not international law but supranational law.
For both Poland and Sweden, EU-law has been a realistic fact in the legislation process.
This paper presents a short discussion concerning how European law effects and alters the transformation of politics into law, what happens when legal regulation does not come from within countries needs but from an external union of joint member states policies. And, how this problem can be tackled empirically from a norm science perspective.
