Legal and Social Science Publications on the Hague Convention
Legal practitioners, judges and advocates may want to gain a better understanding of the background of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, current practice in the United States and around the world, powers of the Central Authority, exceptions to removal under the Hague Convention, as well as analysis of domestic violence and its impact on victims, children and other family members. We hope to add several new data-based reports on domestic violence and international child abduction cases in the very near future.
