Changing Families in Ireland: the Social, Legal and Political Context
ISS21’s 'Family, Gender, Sexualities' Research Cluster is pleased to host a public symposium that will explore implications of the Children and Family Relationships Bill (2015) and the referendum on same sex marriage.
The Children and Family Relationships Bill (2015), running to over 100 pages with over 170 sections, deals with topics as diverse as guardianship, donor-assisted reproduction and custody and it amends existing legislation relating to civil partnership, adoption, passports,and succession. In addition, a forthcoming referendum will potentially extend marriage to same sex couples. ISS21’s ‘Family, Gender, Sexualities’ Research Cluster is pleased to host a public symposium that will explore and debate several of the key legal, social and political implications of the recently passed Children and Family Relationships Bill (2015) and the soon to be held referendum on same sex marriage (which will be held on May 22nd 2015). Presentations from a range of experts in this field in UCC will be given, followed by questions and discussion.
