Volume 24 of the Judges’ Newsletter, the HCCH publication on international child protection, is now available on the HCCH website! This Volume features a Special Focus on “Urgent Measures of Protection” as provided for under Article 11 of the HCCH 1996 Child Protection Convention. Article 11 gives jurisdiction to the authorities of a Contracting Party where the child is found present – albeit not habitually resident – to take measures of protection for that child in cases of urgency. You will find in particular contributions from judges on case law rendered under Article 11 of the 1996 HCCH Child Protection Convention in various jurisdictions. This Volume is available in English only at the moment; the French version will be published in due course.
