International law has become part of everyday family law practice, as lawyers everywhere are confronted with questions regarding the rights of 'mail-order' brides, the adoption of children from other countries, the abduction of children by foreign parents, and domestic violence victims seeking asylum. Indeed, globalization is transforming family law, even as families themselves are being redefined. This book provides a practical overview of such issues and also examines the ways in which culture shapes family law in different countries. It provides students with a useful introduction to challenging, complicated and fascinating issues in international family law. Finally, by incorporating a comparative perspective, it gives readers an opportunity to re-examine their own legal systems.

Choice of law determines which national legal system applies to an international case. Currently many choice of law rules in the field of family law are regulated by national law. However, these national rules of the EU Member States are more and more displaced by common European rules. This book describes the changes brought by the Europeanisation of the choice of law on divorce. From the conclusions drawn in the field of divorce the concluding chapter discusses the changes of Europeanisation of international family law in a broader perspective.

The "International Survey of Family Law," published on behalf of the International Society of Family Law, is the successor to the Annual Survey of Family Law'. It provides information, analysis and comment on recent developments in Family Law across the world on a country-by- country basis. The "Survey" is published annually and its subtitle reflects the calendar year surveyed. Where a country has been regularly surveyed each year, the developments discussed correspond to the year in question. If certain countries have not been surveyed for some years the contributions will usually attempt to cover the intervening period. This applies, for example, in the present volume to the contributions relating to China and Turkey. If countries are being covered for the first time, then more background information will be provided about the state of family law in the country in question. The "Survey" also contains an article dealing with the more significant developments in international law affecting the family.

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.

Die Kommissionsvorschlage zum Internationalen Eheguterrecht und zum Internationalen Guterrecht fur eingetragene Partnerschaften sollen einen klaren Rechtsrahmen fur grenzuberschreitende vermogensrechtliche Wirkungen einer Ehe bzw. eingetragenen Partnerschaft schaffen. Katja Dengel analysiert die vorgeschlagenen Texte auf der Basis eines Vergleichs aller mitgliedstaatlichen Sach- und Kollisionsrechte. Schwerpunkte sind der Anwendungsbereich, die objektiven und subjektiven Anknupfungsmomente sowie ausgewahlte Fragen des Allgemeinen Teils. Der Vorschlag zur Vereinheitlichung des Internationalen Guterrechts fur eingetragene Partnerschaften wird daruber hinaus unter dem Gesichtspunkt einer moglichen Diskriminierung gleichgeschlechtlicher Paare beleuchtet. Die Arbeit mundet in konkrete Verbesserungsvorschlage.
