This article looks at the extent and way in which the European Court of Human Rights takes the interests of insider spouses (citizens or permanent residents) into account in Article 8 ECHR cases (right to family life). It uses Caren's three moral principles for family reunification policies as an analysing tool for the evaluation of the Court's first admission and expulsion cases, and looks at the underlying notions of gender and ethnicity.

This report presents the outcome of a comparative study on the family reunification policies in six European Union (EU) Member States and their impact on the family life of the residents of these Member States.

Dans cette introduction de ce numéro spécial sur la "Loi dans la vie quotidienne des familles transnationales", on argumente que, dans la litterature socio-légale sur le transnationalisme et le processus légal transnational, les personnes ordinaires en tant qu'acteurs sont oubliées. D'autre part, l'élément manquant de la littération sur les familles transnationales est la loi, ou encore les gens ordinaires. 

In the introduction of this special issue on “Law in the everyday lives of transnational families”, we argue that in the socio-legal literature on transnationalism and transnational legal process, ordinary people as actors are missing. On the other hand, what is missing from the abundant literature on transnational families, is law, or are ordinary people. 

Le lien entre mariage, familly, l'économie et la nation est puissant. Les récents événements aux États-Unis, qui vont de l'adoption du Defense of Marriage Act en 1996 aux référendums nationaux sur la question du mariage entre conjoints de même sexe durant les élections présidentielles de 2004, sont autant de rappels que le mariage est plus qu'un arrangement relevant du domaine domestique privé; il s'agit d'une institution politique. Ce chapitre explore le cas des "mail-order brides" dans le contexte américain.

The link between marriage, family, the economy and the nation is a powerful one. Recent events in the United States, from the adoption of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act to state referendums on same-sex marriage during the 2004 presidential elections remind us that more than being a private domestic arrangement, marriage is a political institution. This chapter explore the case of the so-called 'mail-order brides' in the United States.
