This book by six main authors and a number of associate authors constitutes a commentary of the fundamental rights provisions in the Constitution of Finland of 1999. It comprises of some 900 pages of text plus a number of annexes, starting with Chapters 1 and 2 of the Constitution.

In addition, there are separate chapters on general issues such as categories of fundamental rights, limitations on fundamental rights, the relationship between international human rights law and constitutional rights in Finland, fundamental rights in EU law, the operation of fundamental rights in the legislative process, the application of fundamental rights in courts, and on the international protection of fundamental and human rights.
