Carl Fredrik Bergström has his main field of expertise in the law of the European Union, with a focus on inter-relationship to national constitutional law, fundamental principles and system of norms, regulatory behaviour and legal method. His current research concerns, primarily, 1) new patterns of regulatory behaviour within the EU financial market - increasing use of 'regulations' (rather than 'directives') and extensive delegation of regulatory powers to the Commission and/or agencis - and 2) the way in which the Swedish principle of open government (citizens' right to access to official documents) is affected by the EU.
