Abstract [en]

This contribution focuses on challenges faced by judges in Europe when examining family disputes in a multicultural context. Why are judges uneasy when facing religiously or culturally motivated claims? Under what conditions can religious law be applied in cross-border family law cases? Case law from primarily the Nordic countries is examined in order to illustrate the points made.
