About this product
- DescriptionThis book explores the importance of automy in family law. It argues that traditional understandings of automy are inappropriate in the family law context and instead recommends the use of relational automy. The book starts by explaining how automy has historically been understood, before exploring the problems with its use in family law. It then sets out the model of relational automy which, it will be argued, is more appropriate in this context. Finally, some examples of practical application are presented. The issues raised and theoretical discussion is relevant to any jurisdiction.
