About this book

The present volume focuses on the jurisprudence of national, supranational and international jurisdictions (and quasi-juridictions) as regards the legal status of same-sex couples. Its aim is to explore the content, rationale, functioning and potential of the different jurisdictions’ reasonings and their contribution to the strengthening of LGBTI rights (and duties). As a consequence, the book tries to convey the complexities and controversies that derive from the judicial recognition of same-sex couples across the world, taking always into account the relationship of the judiciary with the executive and the legislature and the related problems of legitimacy and democracy. The volume deals with this issue and considers it as a crucial test for modern democracies and contemporary societies.

Reviews

“This thoroughly researched and informative book expertly charts the progress of this revolution across an impressive array of jurisdictions, national, international, and supranational, with a particular emphasis on the role played by the judiciary in advancing the legal recognition of same-sex couples. The text contains twenty-three expertly written chapters, each illuminating in its own right, but collectively providing a comprehensive and enlightening overview of the state of legal developments in this area.” (Fergus Ryan, International Journal of Constitutional Law, Vol. 14 (1), January, 2016)
