Transatlantic dialogues on Private International Law: family and personal status on the move - International Call for Papers for Young Researchers



Transatlantic dialogues on Private International Law: family and personal status on the move

University of Coimbra Institute for Legal Research, UCILeR

The University of Coimbra Institute for Legal Research, UCILeR, located in Coimbra, Portugal is an investigation center devoted to the analysis of the legal implications and possible solutions for societal challenges.

Knowing that the family and personal status have been going through profound changes in internal legislations and in the scope of international mobility, the organizing committee of the Seminar on “Transatlantic dialogues on PIL: family and personal status on the move” (Dulce Lopes, Guillermo Palao Moreno, Nicolas Nord and Paula Távora Vítor) decided to contribute to the ongoing discussions on those issues, by adding a clear and necessary intercontinental dimension to them.

The Seminar is intended to discuss topics related to novelties in the regulation and recognition of family and personal status, through a series of combined panels from colleagues from Europe and America, ranging from the more general issues Family and Personal Status and Registry; Family and Personal Status between Nationality and Habitual Residence; Family and Personal Status and Human Rights and Family and Personal Status and Best Interest of the Child; to the more specific topics on Name in Private International Law (How far should personal autonomy go?); Multiple Parenthood in Private International Law (Socio-affective ties and new family models); Gender in Private International Law (Should sex still be a part of the civil status?) and Poly Amorous Relationships in Private International Law (Going beyond polygamy?)
