 About the Book 

Comprising 56 of the papers originally presented at the highly successful 8th World Conference of the International Society of Family held in Cardiff, UK, Families Across Frontiers provides a unique and invaluable global insight into how both the international community and individual states are attempting to deal with problems and issues raised by families crossing political and cultural frontiers. The book offers detailed consideration of many of the major international instruments affecting the family, such as the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the European Convention on Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women, the Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, the Hague Convention on Inter-Country Abduction, the Hague and European Convention on International Child Abduction, the Hague Convention on Recognition and Enforcement of Maintenance Obligation and on The Law Applicable to Maintenance Obligations and on the Inter-American Convention Support Obligations. Written by experts from 20 different nations, this book provides indispensable reading for those wishing to enhance their understanding of the increasingly important international dimension of family law.
