Abstract: The article explores the ironies involved in the contemporary enforcement of family obligations. As forms of intimate partnership and parenthood become ever more varied, the law of family obligation – child support, property division and alimony – has become increasingly routine and formulaic. As scholars increasingly call for more attention to the varied ways in which different individuals and communities structure their care networks and their intimate lives, the law of family obligation has become less, not more attentive to context. After describing this trend, the article suggests that this divergence of law and reality can be explained as consistent not contradictory. Social acceptance of so many different family forms makes it extraordinarily expensive to address context because the contexts and values of the individuals involved are so varied. In an area of law where very few of the parties have the resources or desire to debate the normative underpinnings of family obligation and where both the parties and the state have strong interests in minimizing contested issues, there are compelling reasons to establish a very rule and status based law of obligation, even if that system is rooted in a normative vision of family that, for the majority of people, has ceased to exist.

Abstract: The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the case studies for Chile, India (Bihar), Jordan, Namibia, New Zealand, and Singapore. The case studies were designed to highlight the best practices employed by the six countries identified above. Specifically, the studies describe the implementation strategies in relation to the conceptual framework and key policy decisions that enabled standards implementation to take root. For example: (a) why did the country develop standards, (b) what educational challenge(s) did the country hope to address through the establishment of standards, (c) were the country’s objectives achieved through standards implementation, (d) what strategies were used to develop and implement the standards, (e) what were some of the lessons learned during the implementation process, and (f) what can other countries learn from these experiences. This presentation will also include a summary overview that compares and contrasts the implementation strategies across the case study countries and offers some conclusions, recommendations, and areas for further work and reflection.
