This doctoral thesis examines the Swedish parental benefit in relation to the EU principles on free movement, namely the Treaty provisions on free movement for workers and Union citizens, and more specifically, the legislation on coordination of social security benefits – Regulation 1408/71 and its successor Regulation 883/2004. The rights enshrined in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and further developed in secondary legislation, mean that there shall be no obstacles for persons making use of their right to free movement. An important aspect is that the movement shall not result in loss of social security benefits, such as benefits relating to childbirth and family costs.
Problems in applying the EU rules in relation to the Swedish parental benefit may however occur in several situations, as regards families moving to Sweden during parental leave, families moving from Sweden during parental leave, and families working and living in different states, one of which is Sweden. Such problems naturally have a negative effect on the free movement of families.
This study provides a legal dogmatic and normative analysis of this field of law and raises questions about how the EU rules are applied in relation to families making use of their right to free movement and how the legislation represents different normative patterns, which may explain some of the problems in applying EU law in the Swedish context. A thorough survey of the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union provides the basis for general conclusions on the issue of free movement and social benefits.
