    I don't know about Sweden, but treaties are most emphatically law in the
    USA; in fact, they are co-equal to the US Constitution.

    The US government has refused to sign some (otherwise high-minded and
    noble) treaties because certain provisions can be construed to overturn or
    limit rights guaranteed by the US Constitution.
