The Universities of Genoa, Valencia, Turiba, the Institute of Private International Law in Sofia, the European Association for Family and Succession Law, and Defence for Children Italy are currently conducting a research Project to collect and develop best practices on the right of the child to information in cross-border family proceedings.
The “MiRI Project” (Minor’s Right to Information in EU civil actions), co-funded by the European Union (JUST/2018/JCOO/AG/CIVI/831608), foresees the involvement of lawyers and judges which may contribute to a truthful reconstruction of how children are effectively informed of their rights, of the circumstances litigated before courts, of the consequences following specific decisions, etc. during cross-border proceedings.
Lawyers and judges may provide their knowledge and expertise by fulfilling a questionnaire – answers to the questionnaire will help Partners to the Project to identify, disseminate already existing good practices, and possibly elaborate new ones.
Answering the questionnaire takes approximately 25-30 minutes; consultations are open until the end of November 2020. Answers are anonymous and will not be published. Answers can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Partners to the Project appreciate your involvement!
