New article on the incorporation of the ECHR in Denmark and Sweden

As readers of this blog will know, I’ve long been puzzled by the Nordic states’ commitment to international human rights norms. In this new article, I analyse the decisions to incorporate the European Convention on Human Rights in Denmark and Sweden in the early 1990s. My argument is that had less to do with the winds of change sweeping across Europe at the time and more to do with competition in the domestic party political constellation than has been previously acknowledged.
