Abstract [en]

In 1999 the Swedish environmental legislation changed. The many laws of the previous legislation were gathered together into one act; “miljöbalken”. The ambition from the legislative part was to make the environmental legislation more clear, easier to grasp and more integrated. “Miljöbalken” is different from earlier legislation with its act character, but also through the formulated aim of the legislation. The aim, and overall goal, of “miljöbalken” is to secure a sustainable development. It also acknowledges the value of nature protection and imposes a responsibility for mankind of taking care of the nature resources and to use them with future generations and their needs in mind.In the second chapter of “miljöbalken” is a set of rules that is called “hänsynsreglerna”. The rules of the second chapter expresses the demands that has to be fulfilled whenever someone supplies for a activity permission. The rules thereby states how each and one of us are supposed to act in order with the goal of the legislation. How these rules are being applied in practise is a matter of vital importance if the legislation is to be in practise what it claims to be in theory; a way towards a sustainable development.This essay wants to examine the practise of “hänsynsreglerna” and studies therefore four errands concerning activity permission. The essay also, shortly, describes the history of the Swedish environmental legislation and discusses different discourses that can be seen to have been dominate over the years.The conclusion of the essay is, in brief, that (based upon the errands that has been examined) the application of “hänsynsreglerna” in practise does not generate what they claim to generate in theory.
