The Changing Family (Paperback)
|A set of essays describing changes in family law in various jurisdictions throughout the world.|
From the Publisher:
Increasing recognition of different family structures has posed dilemmas for family law and policy throughout the world. The problem often takes the form of conflicts between constitutional law or international human rights norms and traditional forms of family association and emerging new forms of familial living. In this volume, leading family lawyers chart and analyse how family law in countries with a wide variety of different backgrounds has responded to these problems. South Africa, in particular, has perhaps become symbolic of these processes, and it is fitting that the South African experience should provide the backdrop against which discussion of these worldwide issues is here presented.
