Project Workshop: Protection of international families post-Brexit through the Conventions of the Hague Conference on Private International Law
On 18th October 2023, members of the Centre for Private International Law (Prof Katarina Trimmings, Prof Justin Borg-Barthet, Ms Konstantina Kalaitsoglou, and Mr Le Xuan Tung) held in the Sir Duncan Rice Library an international workshop titled ‘Protection of international families post-Brexit through the Conventions of the Hague Conference on Private International Law’.
The event was organised under the auspices of an RSE-funded research project ‘Protection of international families with links to the European Union post-Brexit: Collaborative Scotland-EU partnership’.
This very successful event, which was attended by the First Secretary of the Hague Conference on Private International Law, Mr Philippe Lortie, brought together legal practitioners, International Hague Network judges, and government officials from Scotland and the EU.
It provided a platform for lively discussion about the effectiveness of the protection of international families with links to the EU in Scotland, and vice versa post-Brexit, through the Hague Family Law Conventions.
The workshop conclusions will feed into the anticipated outputs of the project, in particular an academic article and a policy recommendation.
