The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction is a remarkable document, which has had significant impact on child protection policies in much of the world. This new collection provides a comprehensive handbook to the practice in litigation involving the Convention in the countries where the Convention has had the greatest impact and litigated cases have been most numerous.
In a time when the role of citation to foreign courts is one of intense controversy, this is an area where the practice of foreign courts and foreign governments is most relevant and valuable, as the very subject matter requires a consideration of the law of more than one country, and the interpretation of a common document by differing courts is of at least highly persuasive value.
The collection will be updated and expanded at regular intervals.
Supplement 2 will become available in August 2007.
