Summary

This companion provides scholars and postgraduate students with a comprehensive and authoritative review of current research in the area of international family law. Bringing together contributors from across a range of jurisdictions and legal traditions, the authors provide a concise but critical review of existing legal and informal regimes, including that of national and regional legislative bodies and courts, and the Hague Conference on Private International Law. Globalization and the vast migrations of capital and labour that have accompanied it in recent decades have transformed family law in once unimaginable ways. Families have been torn apart and new families have been created. Borders have become more porous, allowing adoptees and mail order brides to join new families and women fleeing domestic violence to escape from old ones. People of different nationalities marry, have children, and divorce, not necessarily in that order. They file suits in their respective home states or third states, demanding support, custody, and property. Otherwise law-abiding parents risk jail in desperate efforts to abduct their own children from foreign ex-spouses. Each chapter surveys the current state of research on each topic. While the subject is continually evolving, the authors reflect current thinking and point to directions for future research.
