AFCC 56th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
International Jurisdictional Disputes: The Challenges of International Relocation and the Risk of Abduction
This workshop will be presenting an interdisciplinary perspective on the complex issue of international relocations by taking an in-depth look at the mechanisms used to resolve these disputes (Hague Convention); the loopholes used to surmount them (e.g., concepts such as “age and degree of maturity of the subject child”), the particular risks of these cases (abductions); the factors that have an impact on international relocations (e.g., cultural and geographical factors); and the various parties' biases in approaching these evaluations.
