About the Authors
  • In the first book to offer a comprehensive analysis of family law in the European Union, McGlynn argues that a traditional concept of 'family' which has many adverse effects - on individuals, on families (in all their diverse forms), and indeed on the economic ambitions of the EU is forming the basis for the little-recognised and under-researched field of EU family law. This book examines three different aspects of family life - childhood, parenthood and partnerships - and critically analyses existing EU law in relation to each. It examines the emerging field of EU family law, providing a highly sceptical account of recent developments and a robust challenge to the arguments in favour of the codification of European civil law, including family law.

    • First book to offer a comprehensive analysis of 'family' and family law in the EU
    • Offers a robust challenge to the arguments in favour of the codification of European civil law, including family law, arguing for reform based on human rights principles
    • Offers an innovative, conceptual study of diverse fields of substantive EU law
