  • Description: This book offers broad coverage of the international, comparative, and transnational legal questions that are increasingly important in the practice of family law. It considers global dimensions of the topics covered in an introductory course, including marriage, divorce, establishing parent-child relationships, parental rights and responsibilities, adoption, and domestic violence, and addresses broader questions of private international law, human rights, and immigration and asylum rights. The book is intended to be accessible to students with no background in family law or international law, and also to be challenging for those interested in exploring the fascinating intersection of these two fields.
