You could find out more about how countries in the EU are handling international child abduction cases and implement alternative methods for conflict resolution in the new report of the iCare project.

The aims of the report are to compare characteristics of the means in the participating states in the iCare project (Bulgaria, Italy, Greece, Germany, Belgium), and in the additional countries such as The Netherlands and Poland, on carrying out parental child abduction cases and the usage of International Family Mediation as an alternative method for resolving those conflicts. Moreover, the report compares certain aspects of the 1980 Hague Convention and the Brussels IIa Regulation. Lastly, the upcoming Council Regulation (EU) 2019/1111 of 25 June 2019 on jurisdiction, the recognition and enforcement of decisions in matrimonial matters and the matters of parental responsibility, and the Brussels IIa Recast are shortly reviewed in favor of reflecting if the upcoming legislative measures will be in harmony with the evaluated goals.
