Family Forms and Parenthood

Theory and Practice of Article 8 ECHR in Europe

Book | 1st edition 2016 | United Kingdom | Andrea Büchler, Helen Keller

The European Convention on Human Rights has always had a significant influence on the development of family law in the different European national jurisdictions. However, at a time where family forms have been subject to a profound transformation characterised by the coexistence of a variety of family forms and where, at the same time, national family laws are converging, it is essential to properly understand the ECHR’s influence on national family law. This book explains and analyses in depth the theory and practice of Article 8 ECHR with respect to family forms and parenthood. It examines how judgments of the ECtHR are received and implemented in a variety of Contracting States (Austria, Croatia, England and Wales, Germany, Greece, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland) and how the judgments contribute to the shaping of domestic and European family law. Family Forms and Parenthood concludes with a detailed reflection on the relationship between the case law of the ECtHR and developments in national family law and jurisprudence.

This is book is written for both the academic and professional readership.
