Elgar Research Reviews in Law

Ann Laquer Estin

This research review canvasses the growing literature on international family law, extending from the traditional private law governing cross-border families, to multi-lateral treaties on subjects such as child abduction and intercountry adoption, to the framework of international human rights law that shapes domestic and international family law systems. It explores the internationalization of family law, considers adult relationships and examines parent–child relationships, providing a useful and insightful overview.

Written by a leading authority in the field, this research review will prove to be an invaluable and essential research tool for all international family law academics, researchers and practitioners.
