The Evaluation of social impacts of the new Family Law Act.

Duration: 2007-2008

One of the objectives of the new Family Law Act is social progress. This is natural and expected. At the same time every update in legislation will bring up changes in attitudes, values and human behavior and therefore will direct social developments. What might be the developments in human behavior and in Estonian society in general after the adoption of the new Family Law Act - whether those changes accord with the general will of the society and with the objectives of the state is unclear. What kind of ethical issues might the new law bring up, what kind of individual and collective value judgements does it influence and how compatible will the new law be with more general ethical positions?
