Managing «Difference» in Eastern-European Transnational Families

Edited By Viorela Ducu and Áron Telegdi-Csetri

Studies in this book have been gathered on the occasion of two academic events in the field of Transnational Families, focusing on the Eastern-European space, from a – diversified – qualitative social research perspective. The volume places a special emphasis on a gendered and practice-oriented approach, exploring territories of domination and empowerment that inform the negotiation of difference. Studies follow processes of emancipation, family practices, redistribution of gendered roles, forms of abuse, social remittance, confrontation between rights and cultures, forming joint action strategies and egalitarian capital, in a process of emergence of new social actors. Studies reflect back upon the ambiguity of conceptual frameworks to be put to use while approaching this yet unexplored area.

Intercountry Adoption: a Human Rights Perspective

Abstract Intercountry adoption has grown significantly over the last few decades but it polarized scholars and decision-makers. There is no consensus on how the best interests of the child are to be decided. This paper deconstructs the path which led to lack of trust in this institution and points out convergent trends in comparative law and practice.
