Brill Research Perspectives in Family Law in a Global Society
Taking a national, comparative, or international perspective,
Brill Research Perspectives in Family Law in a Global Society publishes long review articles addressing specific issues found in case law and statutory law that have an impact on the formation, maintenance, and termination of family relationships. At a time when family law has undergone a major transformation in most of the countries in the world, this publication fulfills the function of providing academics, practitioners, and policy-makers worldwide with information regarding the changes that have occurred and the approaches being taken in specific countries toward particular family law doctrines.
As more and more individuals move from one country to the next either by choice or by necessity and form new family relationships with persons from other countries and cultures, there is a need for an understanding of the possible conflicts in family law that will govern their new relationships. This publication meets that need.
