Smittskydd och mänskliga rättigheter : Vad är folkhälsan värd?
Sammanfattning: As society grows, increasing populations and urbanisation also increase the risks diseases spreading. Tight living spaces, deforestation and global travel make it easier for these diseases to travel and spread across the world. The obligation for states to protect the lives and personal safety for its citizens include an obligation to do what is necessary to control the spread of these diseases. However, when these measures to control diseases cause intrusions in the private lives and freedom of movement of individuals in the state, the balance of interests must be carefully considered. This thesis aims to analyse the Swedish system of disease control and the principle of free will present therein, and how these are protected both under normal circumstances and under extraordinary circumstances such as a pandemic. Regarding all measures that constitute forced interventions, the principles of free will and proportionality are fundamental. This thesis discusses whether the considerations and balancing of interests in the Swedish system of disease control are satisfactory, or if changes should be made to either allow more intrusive measures or prohibit these further.
