Evaluating the views of abducted children: trends in appellate case-law

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Analyses case law on the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction 1980 art.13(2) where a child objects to being returned, with particular reference to the level of the child's maturity and the exercise of the court's discretion not to return the child. Considers whether Regulation 2201/2003 has made it more difficult for the courts to balance the views of the children against the aims of the Hague Convention. © 2011 Sweet & Maxwell
