EU Public Procurement Law and Nordic Labour Law: Recent Developments and Future Challenges

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch


In this article I explore the interaction of EU public procurement law and Scandinavian labour law with special regard to the possibilities to include social considerations in a procurement process. I put a particular focus on
• the intersection of public procurement and equality/non-discrimination not only on grounds of nationality but also on grounds of gender, ethnic origin, religion, age, handicap and sexual orientation, and on
• the role of collective agreements in public procurement.
First, I briefly highlight the main features of the overall legal setting of EU and Scandinavian public procurement law and of the Nordic labour relations model.
