Reunite's CEO, Alison, was invited to attend the 2nd EuroAmerican Congress of Family Law which was recently held in Uruguay. She met with Judges, legal professionals, academics and organisations from a number of Latin American countries, including Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Brazil.
There was an opportunity to discuss challenges faced in cases of
parental child abduction and how reunite can work closer with key
stakeholders across Latin America to benefit families and children.
Also in October, Reunite exhibited at the Resolution Dispute Resolution Conference in Nottingham.
It was a great opportunity to speak with lawyers and other mediators
about how beneficial mediation can be in international cases involving
children, and to highlight the work of their advice line.
Earlier in October reunite attended a conference in Moscow examining the use
and enforcement of the 1980 and 1996 Hague Conventions in Russia.
The event was attended by experts from Russia and the UK, and examined
how child abduction cases are treated in both countries. Reunite's Development
and External Communications Liaison Officer Vicky spoke about the work
of reunite including their advice line, mediation and policy work.
The conference was a great opportunity to learn about different aspects
of the 1980 Hague system in Russia, and hopefully the information and
experience shared will be of use to parents in the future.
Well done to all involved.
