The project deems to provide a comparison of the continuation of joint parental authority after divorce and relationship break-up in Dutch and Danish law. The project further includes a comparison with the Principles on Parental Responsibilities developed by the Commission on European Family Law (CEFL). The project is directed at providing an understanding of a development in the law, which has many common elements with respect to the content, means and timing and to provide a critical assessment of this development. The book is divided into three main parts. Part one deems to look at the development in a historical and national sociological perspective. Further the influence of human rights upon this development is analysed. Part two contains the comparison between Dutch and Danish law and the CEFL principles. Part three contains conclusions and assessment.
