The Hague Child Abduction Convention has proved to be one of the most widely ratified treaties ever agreed at the Hague Conference on Private International Law. This book provides a much needed systematic analysis of the way in which the Convention has been applied in England and Scotland, with extensive reference to the case law of Australia, Canada, France, New Zealand and the United States. All the key provisions and terms of the Convention are thoroughly explored. The book also provides broader insights into the role of the Hague Conference and the use of habitual residence as a correcting factor. The aim of the Oxford Monographs in Private International Law series, edited by Peter Carter QC, is to publish works of quality and originality in a number of important areas of private international law. The series in intended for both scholarly and practitioner readers.

International child abduction is one of the most emotionally charged and fascinating areas of family law practice. The 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction was the response of the international community to the increase in the phenomenon of parental child abduction. However, behind the widely acclaimed success of this Convention - which has now been ratified by more than 90 states - lie personal tragedies, academic controversy and diplomatic tensions. The continuing steady flow of case-law from the various Member States has resulted in the emergence of different approaches to the interpretation of key concepts in the Convention. In addition, over the years other global and regional legal instruments and the recommendations of the Special Commissions have had an impact on the implementation of the Convention. This book brings together all these strands and provides an up-to-date, clear and highly readable discussion of the international operation of the Abduction Convention together with in-depth critical academic analysis in light of the objectives of the Convention and other relevant legal norms, such as the 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Throughout the book, examples are brought from case law in many jurisdictions and reference is made to relevant legal and social science literature and empirical research. Over the past decade, increasing focus has been placed on what might be seen as procedural issues, such as separate representation for children, undertakings, judicial liaison and mediation. The book analyses the significance of these developments and the extent to which they can help resolve the continuing tension between some of the objectives of the Convention and the interests of individual children. This book will be essential reading for judges, practitioners, researchers, students, policy-makers and others who are seeking a critical and informed analysis of the latest developments in international abduction law and practice. From the Foreword by Brenda Hale, Justice of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom 'This book is, as far as I am aware, the first scholarly monograph to study the interpretation and application of the Convention across the whole legal space which it occupies and to critically assess these in light of the object and purposes of the Convention and other relevant legal norms. Cases are drawn from many jurisdictions to discuss how different countries interpret the Convention and links are made with relevant statistical, social and psychological research in a thoughtful discussion of the significance of such material both to judicial decision-making and to policy development...a study which deserves to be read by anyone with an interest in the modern phenomenon of international child abduction, whether judge, practitioner, policy-maker, parent, researcher or scholar. There is plenty for us all to think about.'

Cross-border Enforcement of Patent Rights

The enforcement of patent rights raises complex, and, from a private international law perspective, unique difficulties. Since intellectual property practitioners started to seek the consolidation of cross-border patent disputes, the interplay of private international rules has led to drastic changes in patent litigation across Europe. This book analyses in detail both the European rules on jurisdiction (the Brussels Convention and its successors) and the choice of law rules as they apply to cross-border patent disputes, and will be essential reading for both intellectual property lawyers and international commercial litigation specialists. At the jurisdictional stage, the basic question is whether the current jurisdictional framework provides a basis for the concentration of related litigation. For jurisdictional purposes, patent enforcement is a tort. Accordingly, cross-border patent enforcement attempts may generally be undertaken at the forum of the defendant's domicile, the place of the tort and, as far as provisional measures are concerned, another forum with a sufficient connection to the dispute. On the other hand, the application of the current jurisdictional framework to international patent infringement disputes leads to significant difficulties such as the pre-emptive effect of proceedings pending abroad or the jurisdictional consequences of a patent validity challenge. At the choice of law stage, this book provides a comparative overview of the rather unexplored issues arising in multinational patent enforcement. De lege feranda, it seems that, in view of the territorial nature of patents, a distributive application of the law of the protecting State (lex loci protectionis) appears to be the most consistent choice of law rule.

This book examines the problems of choice of law where transactions cross borders and involve shares or other securities of different nationalities. It considers dealings in securities under the traditional direct holding system and under the modern system of holding through intermediaries. Various theories and legislative reforms have been suggested in an attempt to resolve these two methods, and the book examines the extent to which they provide a viable solution.

Die Existenz nichtehelicher Lebensgemeinschaften in verschiedensten Formen in den westlichen Ländern ist ein unumstößliches Faktum. Für diese Lebensgemeinschaften bestehen eine Vielzahl von Rechtsproblemen, so insbesondere bei der Auflösung der Lebensgemeinschaft durch Trennung oder Tod und bei nichtehelichen Kindern. Wie weit sollen Regelungen greifen, insbesondere in Hinblick darauf, dass viele dieser Menschen sich bewusst gegen eine enge Rechtsbeziehung entschieden haben? Eine mögliche künftige Regelung steht daher zwischen dem Schutzbedürfnis der schwächeren Partei und der Kinder einerseits und der Privatautonomie andererseits. Der Band enthält u.a. Analysen zum rechtlichen Status nichtehelicher Gemeinschaften in zwölf Staaten und will vor dem Hintergrund der Bildung erster Strukturen eines "europäischen Familienrechts" ein Modell für Deutschland entwickeln helfen.Mit Beiträgen von:Katharina Boele-Woelki und Wendy Schrama, Nina Dethloff, Anatol Dutta, Frederique Ferrand, Cristina Gonzalez Beilfuss, Winifred H.
