Just released: Volume 24 of the Judges’ Newsletter on International Child Protection
Written by Frédéric Breger, Legal Officer at
the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Conference on Private International Law
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.
