English translation:conflicts of interest
Explanation:
Conflict of interest is not the most common translation for "jäv", but it seems to fit best here. It means that there is a situation that makes a person in a position of power, or authority, disqualified, since his or her's impartiality can be questioned.
I hope this helps.
