Abstract

Dr Nicola Taylor, Professor of Family Law and Director of Children’s Issues Centre , University of Otago New Zealand and Professor Marilyn Freeman, co-director International Centre for Family Law, Policy and Practice, University of Westminster, London, address the issue of international child abduction, a global phenomenon which has a mainly detrimental effect on a child’s wellbeing and on the nature and quality of their family relationships. The Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 was implemented to provide for cooperation between contracting parties to ensure that a child wrongfully removed from their habitual state of residence is returned forthwith . The chapter reviews the development of the Convention compared with other types of family law proceedings, and considers it to be a remarkable success , as well as highlighting the various challenges encountered in its 41 year old history.
