'Best interests of the child' in the USA and Europe

Sarah Sargent. The USA and Europe have vastly differing interpretations of the 'best interest of the child' standard. This is particularly notable when the standard is applied in child welfare matters. Sarah Sargent's paper examines the consequences of these differing interpretations. Of late, policy-makers and researchers have tended to rely heavily upon US child welfare policy and research. This is done without a concomitant recognition of the systemic problems in US child welfare. See March [2006] International Family Law 24 for the full article.
