Sweden has gained a reputation for being a vocal defender of human rights in the international arena. Yet the country fails to address serious human rights violations in its own backyard. This includes increased police violence, violations of privacy, ethnic/racial profiling, deficiencies in asylum law and crimes against the fundamental rights of Roma and Sami coupled with the increasing prevalence of hate crimes within Swedish society.
