- as well as the other Nordic countries - is often mentioned as a model of a
welfare state in which the state plays a key role in the protection and
promotion of the social and economic well-being of its citizens. In this model,
the rights of individuals have been guaranteed as social human rights, social
fundamental rights, and social rights through various instruments:
international treaties, national constitutions, and legislation. However,
fulfilling these rights can differ between different countries concerning the
scope and content of rights, institutional obligations and competences, and the
form of legal protection of rights. These topics will be discussed from Finnish
perspective during this lecture.
Lohiniva-Kerkelä is one of Finland’s leading experts in social and health care
law, widely welfare law. Her expertise covers especially issues of health care
rights and the respective responsibilities of the state authorities and
professionals in guaranteeing access to health care.
