Leading authorities explore the successes and shortcomings of the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction in the thirty years that have elapsed since that Convention entered into force. Special attention is given to national legislation implementing the Convention and to judicial practice applying Convention and legislative provisions.

The Convention continues to attract ratifications, and lawyers from many countries will find the thoughtful articles contained in this volume helpful in understanding comparative approaches to this increasingly important domain of international legal cooperation.

Robert E. Rains is Emeritus Professor of Law at the Dickinson School of Law, Pennsylvania State University. His career as a family law specialist spans the decades in which the Hague Abduction Convention has been in force.
