Family, Law, and Society: From Roman Law to the Present Day

Family, Law, and Society: From Roman Law to the Present Day

Family, Law, and Society: From Roman Law to the Present Day, co-edited by Dr. Ewa Dawidziuk from SWPS University,offers insightful perspectives on the evolution of family law. This academic publication addresses issues such as changing forms of cohabitation, new reproductive technologies, and gender equality. It is an essential contribution to the ongoing debates about the role of family in the twenty-first century.

International perspectives on family, law, and society

The family has long been the cornerstone of society, closely intertwined with the legal system and societal norms. However, the relationship between these elements is constantly evolving. To shed light on the complexities of family law, a group of distinguished legal scholars from various European universities collaborated on Family, Law, and Society: From Roman Law to the Present Day. Edited by Dr. Ewa Dawidziuk, Vice-Dean for Student Affairs of SWPS University's Faculty of Law in Warsaw, Professor Patricia Panero from the University of Barcelona, and Professor Anna Tarwacka from Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw, this academic publication offers critical insights into the historical and contemporary complexities of family law.

Exploring family dynamics and legal frameworks

The book offers an insightful view of the evolving landscape of family law and its impact on society. Drawing upon multiple historical and contemporary sources, it addresses issues such as the secularization of marriage, gender equality, and challenges posed by modern reproductive technologies, providing readers with a panoramic view of the legal dilemmas families face in the 21st century.

We cannot ignore the challenges facing family law in Europe. Demographic transformations, technological advances, changes in family patterns, and social inequalities raise questions and ethical dilemmas that require a constant adaptation and updating of family laws. It is imperative that legislators, academics, legal practitioners, and society as a whole actively collaborate to address these challenges and ensure that family law remains a driver of justice and fairness in Europe.
