    Fostering Family Harmony: Principles and Practices

    Whether families are intact or separated, family harmony is strongly associated with private and public benefits. Both children and adult partners experience health, wealth, and happiness benefits from family harmony. These benefits, and the higher likelihood of intrafamilial support that go with them, produce public gains as well. 

    What legal principles, practices, and organizational structures can best promote family harmony? The conference theme is intended to be inclusive, extending to both public and private family law as well as the social sciences. International and comparative approaches are encouraged but not required. To the extent possible, the conference will feature panels in French and Spanish as well as English, but translation will not be available.

    In addition to regular conference presentations, the meeting will include a limited number of workshop sessions (in English only) to provide an opportunity for discussion of scholarly work at an early stage. Workshop participants will be asked to circulate a brief (no more than five pages) summary of their projects before the meeting date.

    To participate, please send a one-page paper or workshop proposal to Marsha Garrison, Brooklyn Law School, at  Proposals submitted before January 15, 2013 will be given priority consideration.  Acceptance notifications will be on a rolling basis beginning on January 15.
