European Family Law

  • Volume 1: The Impact of Institutions and Organisations on European Family Law
  • Volume 2: The Changing Concept of ‘Family’ and the Challenges for Domestic Family Law
  • Volume 3: Family Law in a European Perspective
  • and The Present and Future of European Family Law
The four volumes that make up this monumental project represent the insight and experience of many fine family law scholars. The volumes examine themes, individual countries, and distinct pan-European institutions and developments. Jens Scherpe's tour de force is to pull all this together in the final remarkable volume. For a non-European like me, it is fascinating to read about harmonisation and diversity, privacy and rights, pluralism and protection. This is a truly wonderful achievement.
