This two-day workshop will compare systems of family law in Canada, the Unites States, and worldwide. Panelists will explore the impacts of immigration, globalization, and public policy on the family - and vice versa: the impact of the family and family law on immigration, globalization, and public policy. The workshop is part of a series of meetings designed to assess the "exceptional" place of the family and family law in decolonization, modernization, and development.
Presented by the Women and International Law Program and the "Up Against Family Law Exceptionalism" project of Harvard Law School's Program on Law and Social Thought
