The conference is structured along six sessions. Most of them are Interdisciplinary sessions where different matters will be analysed: Models of shared parenting (SP) and their incidence in the best interest of the child, SP in case of babies and toddlers, SP when the relations between the parents are strained, litigation rate after an SP decision, relation between the economic measures and SP in the settlement agreements or judicial decisions, socioeconomic profile of shared parenting or alternative dispute resolution on shared parenting. There will also be a legal session where the evolution or recent regulations in Western countries will be evaluated. Also for discussion is the advisability of having presumptions in favour of sole or shared parenting.
International specialists in the field of shared parenting – representing both the academic sciences, and the legal and family professions – are invited to present their recent research results and professional practices at this interdisciplinary conference.
In parallel, the ICSP Conference Málaga 2019 call for papers kindled the interest of many scientists, professionals and members of civil society from around the world. The language of the Conference will be English. However, simultaneous interpretation system will be available in Spanish.
Malaga is located beside the Mediterranean Sea in Andalucía, Spain. It has its own airport and is for this reason easily accessible by plane (for intercontinental flights via Madrid or Barcelona, the airport is 10-15 minutes from the city centre by train), train or bus. The Campus of the University of Malaga can be reached within another 10-15 minutes from the city centre by metro or bus or within less than 20 minutes by taxi from the airport (at reasonable prices).
The Faculty building offers all that is needed – especially an unexpectedly well-equipped and pretty conference hall (ideal for the plenary sessions), rooms for the workshops, as well as a helpful and friendly staff. Cooking facilities and the faculty cafeteria are adjacent, so catering can easily be organized. Prices for hotels and additional programs (like the conference dinner) are low, compared to other European cities.
Last but not least, Malaga is a beautiful city. The home of 500,000 inhabitants has a lot to offer, as much from a cultural as from a culinary perspective. Furthermore, it is just a stone’s throw away from world class tourist attractions, such as the Alhambra in Granada (the world’s most visited tourist attraction), the Mezquita in Cordoba or the famous bridge of Ronda, just to mention a few. It would not be a surprise if some of the conference participants added a few days to their stay in Malaga to visit at least some of these sights.
The organization recommends the following hotels. Both of them are really well located, twenty minutes from airport by train and eight minutes from the School of Law by underground:
In case you wish a hotel in the historic centre these are other options:
In case you wish a hotel in Torremolinos (30 minutes to the School of Law by train + subway) these are other options:
