About FamLaPP

Participants and networks

Our research on family law and practices is cross-disciplinary, branching out to academic fields such as sociology, social studies, anthropology, cultural studies, nursing and architectural engineering. Our research focuses on Nordic national arenas, on the Nordic hemisphere at large, and on more broadly comparative issues. FamLaPP research is also cross-institutional. The head of FamLaPP, dr. Marianne Holdgaard, has a long-standing co-operation with colleagues at Aarhus University, the University of Oslo and other Nordic universities, and now also the Universities of Florida and Cambridge. We are currently in the process of establishing an international reference group.

FamLaPP is organized into a Steering Committe, an International Advisory Board, AAU participants, and Corresponding members and participants.
