Law professor believes Norwegians have hidden rights

Norwegians may miss EU rights because of similar mistakes made in the Nav case, says Professor Christoffer Conrad Eriksen.

– The Nav cases are a spectacular expression of errors that can also be found in many other administrative cases, says Eriksen at the Department of Public Law at the University of Oslo to Dagbladet.

He says Norwegians have hidden rights through the EEA agreement, which we are not aware of, because they are difficult to find in the legislation. This may mean that decisions are being made in several areas in violation of the rights of people.

One example is the rights patients have to purchase services across national borders in the EU. The Patient Rights Directive is part of the EEA Agreement and allows Norwegian citizens to choose treatment in the EU when the deadline for treatment has expired. The costs of the treatment are what the Norwegian authorities must pay for, the professor points out.

– It is serious that the Patient Rights Directive has not been implemented so that patients’ rights are sufficiently clear in the legislation, says Eriksen.

The Vocational Qualifications Directive is another example. Rights such as deadlines for obtaining an education are not expressed in Norwegian law.

  2. SHAHRZAD MIRZAAGHA, get on twitter and look for #NAVSkandalen to make contact with others. Also send your complaint to and, if you can fill out and send a case to European Court of Human Rights. These are your only options since what should be the law in Norway is NOT the law so the courts are useless to citizens …. good luck.
