Shared parental responsibilities

Shared parental responsibilities and the best interests of the child

Perspectives in Spain, England & Wales, and Switzerland with a special focus on the influence of media

Is there a direct, or indirect, influence from the media on the interests of the child and the passing of certain laws? How and where can this influence be seen? The best interests of the child is open to interpretation depending on the specific moment, and the transformation of the concept can be biased by different actors. Taking as an example the introduction of the shared parental responsibilities in Spain, Switzerland and England and Wales, the thesis aims to demonstrate the role that the media have played in the transformation of the best interests of the child in the adoption of these laws.
