This article summarises the work of the Leverhulme
International Network on New Families; New Governance and reports on their
final London academic conference in September 2014. Drawing on the opening
keynote address by Baroness Hale, key findings from this interdisciplinary and
international 3-year project exploring the changing relationship between family
and State are discussed and explored from different perspectives. Some commonalities and differences in causes
and responses are considered, alongside lessons for family law and policy
locally and globally. The themes of
Governance and regulation: making good families or making families good?;
Renegotiating relationships; what is the future for family solidarity? And
Voices heard and unheard: can we adjust the volume? are considered in the light
of papers given by international speakers from Australia, USA, UK and
Europe. The article concludes with the
thoughts of the discussant Professor Carol Smart and confirms the intellectual
challenges which remain locally and globally in the field of family law and
policy. The full version of this article appears in the January 2015 issue of Family Law.
