An assessment of measures of proposed measures on family law at EU level

This briefing paper assesses what type of measures in family law have been proposed at EU level and the puts the following methodological questions: (i) should there be only one law which applies to all family law issues within a family, or rather (ii) should each issue be governed by its own law? And (iii) should there be unity of applicable law within a family, or (iv) can different laws apply to the different family members and to their respective relationships? How should the substantive rules then be coordinated in case of irreconcilable divergence?
