The ‘Family & Law’ forum

The Family & Law forum is the first online open access forum in the area of family and law in Belgium and the Netherlands. This forum is a common Belgian-Dutch initiative and was made possible by the NWO’s incentive fund for open access journals.

The forum provides a platform for academic articles in the field of the Personal Status, Family and Youth Law. Through this, the exchange of knowledge and debate between theory and practice in Belgium and the Netherlands will be promoted. All contributions published on this forum are open access (free to view, download and print). It is facilitated with the support of Boom Legal Publishers.

Articles and (book) reviews that are published on the Family & Law forum undergo a double blind peer review procedure. The editors, the Board of Advice and the permanent reviewers include leading academics from legal and social science disciplines from Belgium and the Netherlands. Through this, the quality of this new initiative is guaranteed.
