Doctoral prize of the Chancellerie des universités de Paris goes to Samuel Fulli-Lemaire
Dr. Samuel Fulli-Lemaire, former research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, has received the Prix solennel André Isoré en droit privé of the Chancellerie des universités de Paris. This is the third honour that has been awarded for his dissertation, following the doctoral prizes of the Université Panthéon-Assas (Paris II) and the Comité français de droit international privé.
In his dissertation titled “Le droit international privé de la famille à l’épreuve de l’impératif de reconnaissance des situations” (Rethinking the Recognition of Family Relationships in Private International Law), Samuel Fulli-Lemaire examines the possibilities that international private law offers for the recognition of family relationships established abroad. The work particularly focuses on new forms of family relationships such as same-sex marriage and parentage through surrogacy, the recognition of which is being called for in France. In his dissertation project, Fulli-Lemaire analyses the conceptual framework and methods of IPR and also devotes attention to existing discourses in this area.
The 2017 Activity Report contains an extensive description (in German) of this dissertation project.
