World conferences 16th ISFL World Conference: Family Law and Family Realities


25/07/2017 – 29/07/2017

The 16th World Conference of the International Society of Family Law, ‘Family Law and Family Realities’, took place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands from 25 July to 29 July 2017 at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam. The Conference was dedicated to the subject whether existing national family laws adequately reflect the rapidly changing realities of family life. In various parts of the world both academic lawyers and practitioners are no longer content with focusing on family law alone. Concern about the correlation between family law and family realities triggers growing interest in empirical research involving both lawyers and social scientists. Selected papers and slides from the Amsterdam conference are available here.
