Cross-border family cases and religious diversity: What can/must judges do?

0

RELIGARE Evening Lecture. Welcome drink at 17.30.

The RELIGARE project researches how the principle of equality is challenged by the multiplication of religions and other convictions that are irreversibly transforming Europe into a new type of plural society. This seminar seeks to approach this delicate theme from the point of view of the judiciary, which is increasingly confronted with religious claims, especially in family matters.

Professor Jänterä-Jareborg teaches Private International Law and International Civil Procedure at the University of Uppsala, Sweden. She has published widely on international family law and has lectured at the world-renowned Hague Academy of International Law on foreign law in national courts. Moreover, Professor Jänterä-Jareborg is no stranger to policy advice and policy-driven research. She acts as an advisor to the Swedish Ministry of Justice in cross-border family matters and has participated in international negotiations in the EU and at the Hague Conference on Private International Law.
