The fourth International Conference on Shared Parenting will be held in Strasbourg on November 22 and 23, 2018. Specialists in the field of shared parenting – representing both the academic sciences and the legal and family professions – are invited to present their research results and professional practice accounts at this interdisciplinary conference.

The theme of this conference will be “Shared Parenting, Social Justice and Children´s Rights

The conference intends to report how, within judicial systems and social work practices, both parents are recognized as vital in their children’s lives, even after separation and divorce. It will explore how shared parenting seems a means for keeping with the principles and articles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Thus, a focus of the conference is to stress how shared parenting, viewed as in the best interests of children of separated parents, is a crucial issue for practitioners and policymakers around the globe, regarding the alignment of national law and practices with the articles of the UN CRC.

 The conference is structured along four main questions.

  • First, what are the existing legal systems and the challenges regarding the legal presumption of shared parenting as a children’s right, in different countries? 
  • Second, what are the current trends and research outcomes regarding social attitudes and knowledge about shared parenting? 
  • Third, to what extent could shared parenting, gender equality and work-life balance be combined to improve health and wellbeing of children whose parents are separated? 
  • Fourth, how should national laws and international regulations be adapted for considering these social evolutions?

International specialists in the field of shared parenting – representing both the academic sciences, and the legal and family professions – are invited to present their recent research results and professional practices at this interdisciplinary conference.

The program of the conference offers the opportunity to hear the main international experts on children’s rights, justice and law, sociology, psychology, and public health.
