Written from a UK perspective, by three of the UK's leading child abduction specialists, International Movement of Children is the most authoritative and comprehensive text available on this highly complex and technical topic. The book deals with both lawful movement and abduction of children into and out of the UK, including full coverage of the criminal law. It contains information and case-law from important overseas jurisdictions to enable practitioners to advise parents of abducted children on the likely responses of foreign courts. Also included are relevant source materials and precedents as well as full details of central authorities and other relevant agencies both in the UK and abroad. International Movement of Children will be of value to family law practitioners as well as to the police, local authorities and all government officials working in this area.
