Edleson, Shetty to present study on domestic violence and The Hague Convention on International Child Abduction

Humphrey International Fellowship Programs, will discuss a recently completed study about battered mothers who sought safety in the U.S. The study, funded by the National Institute of Justice, found that these women face court proceedings under The Hague Convention that frequently result in the return of their children to their abusive partners.
