Families and the European Union Summary


Families and the European Union: Law, Politics and Pluralism by Clare McGlynn (University of Durham)

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.

Families and the European Union Reviews


'... this is the first book that offers a comprehensive analysis of family law and policies in the EU. ... by providing a very strong conceptual background, Families and the European Union will not go out of date. ... Families and the European Law is very well researched and provides the reader with an invaluable wealth of sources. It is written in a clear and engaging style. It will be of interest not only to students and academics but also to practitioners and policy-makers; more generally to anybody who has an interest in this area.' European Journal of International Law
