Overview

The International Encyclopedia of Comparative Law, published in 17 volumes, is written by worldwide recognized leading specialists of comparative law. 16 of these volumes are devoted to one large area of private and commercial law, each of which is dealt with exclusively from a comparative law perspective, whereas the first volume provides reports on all the countries of the world, in alphabetical order, pertaining to the same subjects. The emphasis of this volume of the International Encyclopedia of Comparative Law is on comparative analyses mainly of family law. All aspects of the legal status of individuals are covered in one broad chapter. Five comprehensive chapters (most of these comprising between 100 and 200 double-column pages) deal on a comparative basis with the various aspects of family law - conclusion of marriage; family property; separation and divorce. Two chapters are devoted to the law of children, especially their status, property and protection. Two final long chapters deal with the changes in the family law of the post-socialist countries of Eastern Europe and with the family law of religious communities and that of customary law groups. An introductory chapter sketches the more important developments of family law that have occurred in the past 30 years.
