Monograph International Child Relocation Law: Competing Interests; Competing Human Rights

Project: Other


International Child Relocation Law will provide a clear, interdisciplinary and socio-legal analysis of the law in an international context with a focus on selected jurisdictions. Whilst there is some mileage in the argument that there is a growing rationalisation of the law in this area, it has been at the worrying dominance of presumptive post separation shared parenting. This book suggests that such an approach may well result in the pursuit of an ‘ideal’ (father led) family, at the expense of other familial possibilities. The pursuit of shared parenting as an end goal in itself also wrongly places the emphasis upon parental rights rather than what is in the best interests of the child.
