The Construction of Fatherhood: The Jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights (Cambridge University Press, 2019)
The book critically investigates how the European Court of Human Rights deals with and makes sense of shifting practices and ideas of fatherhood. By tracing values and assumptions underpinning the Court’s caselaw, it engages in timely conversations about the role of men as fathers, and explores the importance attached to care when attributing legal status and parental rights to fathers. The book also delves into the Court’s use of its doctrines of interpretation, revealing the intricate interplay between doctrinal and moral forces in shaping the emerging (re)conceptualisation of fatherhood.
