This highly topical series addresses some of the most important questions and areas of research in contemporary Family Law. Each volume is designed by leading experts to appraise the current state of scholarship and probe the key questions for future research on a particular topic. The series encompasses the traditional pillars of family law, as well as some of the most pressing issues in the field, ranging from, among others, Adoption to Divorce, Child Abduction to Marriage and Cohabitation, and from Domestic Violence to Family Property.
Each Research Handbook comprises specially-commissioned chapters from leading academics and practitioners, and those with an emerging reputation, drawn from different jurisdictions. Each is written with a global readership in mind. Useful both as reference tools and high-level introductions to specific topics, issues and debates, these Research Handbooks will be used by academic researchers, postgraduate students, practising lawyers and policy makers.
