The EUFams II consortium has just released the project’s Final Study. The volume contains the papers presented at the project’s Final Conference. The contributors were invited to present historical developments, discuss the status quo, and draw the lines along which European family and succession law may develop. The authors hope to inspire the readership and the scientific community at large to engage in further research along and across these lines.

The book is available both online (open access) as well as in print (link). Its contributors are (in alphabetical order): Marlene Brosch, Laura Carballo Pineiro, Diletta Danieli, Rosario Espinosa Calabuig, Ivana Kunda, Quincy C. Lobach, Cristina M. Mariottini, Ulf Maunsbach, Nicolo Nisi, Cinzia Peraro, Thomas Pfeiffer, Paula Poretti, Tobias Rapp, Lenka Valkova, Ilaria Viarengo, Francesca Villata, Marcel Zühlsdorff, and Mirela Zupan.

The EUFams II project (2018-2020) was coordinated by the Institute for Comparative Law, Conflict of Laws and International Business Law of Heidelberg University. Project partners were the Universities of Lund, Milan, Osijek, Valencia, and Verona as well as the MPI Luxembourg. This blog has previously reported on some of the project’s research outputs, including the Final Conference.
