World Congress on Family Law and Children’s Rights calls for papers

Date:17 APR 2019
Third slide

The World Congress on Family Law and Children's Rights has issued a call for papers for its 8th conference, which will be taking place in Singapore in July 2020.

Members of the legal sector, government, non-government associations, academics, medical professionals, police, social scientists and beyond are invited to submit abstracts under the conference theme "2020 Vision: Through the eyes of a child". The programme will offer many common areas of black letter law for discussion and debate, as well as specific children’s rights issues. Areas for submission are listed on the conference website and include:

  • new approaches to family justice and child issues;
  • the exploitation of children;
  • protecting especially vulnerable children;
  • changing family formations;
  • international families;
  • social media and children;
  • adoption, surrogacy, parentage;
  • a diagnosis and possible interventions for troubled families;
  • financial rights, including property, offshore assets, cryptocurrencies.
  • a range of international, social and cultural considerations.

In addition, in a world of highly mobile families, the conference will give attention to the ways in which family law meets the various needs of families in whatever form, in order to provide a structure which can effectively and justly provide for its members who are the subject of relationship breakdown.

A primary aim of the Conference is to develop outcomes that directly benefit those who are especially vulnerable and disadvantaged, as well as to share excellence in family law practices.

The abstract submission deadline is 31 July 2019. A complete list of topics can be found here.
