Abstract and Keywords
Family law is no longer an isolated field that simply represents the traditions and values of an individual culture. Transnational influences, including human rights, regional and international institutions, and social movements, have played a crucial role in opening family law to widening perspectives. At the same time, individuals and families are moving across borders in a manner not seen in previous eras. This chapter will revisit the traditional understanding of the family and family law, tied exclusively to domestic norms, and generate a greater understanding of the modern regulatory framework through a transnational lens.
