Abstract [en]

This book, edited by Maarit Jänterä-Jareborg, addresses one of the most pressing issues of any multicultural society, namely the conflicting demands, by society and the family, on children from minority groups or children born to parents of different cultural or religious backgrounds.  What the family (or a parent) considers to be inte child's best interests and welfare in the studied situations is not shared by society at large. The various contributions, written primarily by leading experts and with an interdisciplinary element, address situations of conflict regarding the child's upbringing and education, the shaping of the child's cultural or faith-based identity, underage marriage, circumcision of boys, forced placements of children into care outside of their parental home, and the role of faith in cross-border custody disputes.

Abstract [en]

This contribution evaluates the  Nordic (primarly Swedish and Finnish) impact on the Europen Union's civil law cooperation within family law and the law of inheritance, starting from mid 1990s when Sweden and Sweden joined the European Union. Both countries have strived to have progressive, pragmatic EU-regulations, and have succeeded to some extent. In addition, they have strived to maintain a certain level of legal coherence in relation to special conventions previously adopted between the five Nordic states (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden). As a result, in the manner explained in the contribution, amendments of the Nordic Conventions reflect those of the new EU regulations. All of the hitherto adopted EU-regulations include special provisions in relation to the Nordic Conventions (so-called "Nordic exceptions").

Abstract [en]

Despite global undertakings to safeguard the full enjoyment of human rights, culture, traditional practices and religion are widely used to discriminate against women. In this volume 17 scholars approach women's human rights globally, regionally and nationally, combining the perspectives of public and private interntional law in a hitherto unique manner.
