Rights on the move – Rainbow families in Europe is the international conference closing the research project with the same name, an action co-funded by the European Union Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme (for more information on the project visit www.unitn.it/rotm).
The conference will look at European legal obstacles and solutions for rainbow families, i.e. families where the couple and the parental roles involve non-heterosexual, trans or intersex persons moving and residing within the EU. By adopting a child-oriented approach, “Rights on the move” aims at unravelling how freedom of movement and family life should be read in compliance with the EU Charter, the European citizenship rights of the child and other international and supranational instruments. The diversity of regulations about marriage and partnership, access to assisted reproductive technologies and adoption, as well as separation and child custody exposes these families to considerable obstacles when moving within the EU.
During the two days keynote speakers, contributors selected with a call for papers and experts will discuss the results of the project research and highlight the latest trends and challenges in the field of LGBTI rights. The conference will pay particular attention to reproductive rights and recognition of legal status.
Working languages are English, French and Italian.
