On 30 June 2023, the 6th Awareness Raising Seminar of the FAMIMOVE project took place at the University of Milano-Bicocca. The Seminar brought together 17 among judges, lawyers, practitioners, government officials and experts in the field of migration law and private international law.

The lively debate revolved around several subjects: a recent judgment of the Italian Corte di Cassazione (the Italian Supreme Court) on unaccompanied Ukrainian children leaving the war zone (n. 17603 of 20 June 2023), together with an earlier decision of the Juvenile Tribunal of Bolzano (n. 37 of 6 April 2022); the recognition of guardianship and custody decisions, in particular but not only, to Ukrainian minors; the role of private international law; the Italian model of voluntary guardianship; family reunification; forced marriages and kafala. The participants also brought to the attention of the audience some case studies that were discussed during the intense day of work and reflection.

The FAMIMOVE team and the Coordinator of the Research Unit (Prof. Costanza Honorati) of the University of Milano-Bicocca would like to thank the participants for the lively and frank discussion.

The awareness raising seminars have the objective to raise awareness of the challenges in the field of international family law and migration & asylum law, to support and encourage stakeholders to further participate in the project activities and to collect feedback and best practices regarding the problems that such stakeholders are confronted with.
