Abstract:
Legal framework on international protection of adults in Spanish law has been recently modified through four different legal reforms: Law 7/2015 on jurisdiction rules, law 26/2015 on applicable law rules and laws 15 and 29/2015 on recognition and enforcement rules. This article analyzes these reforms through recent spanish jurisprudence and administrative decisions and underlines the convenience of the ratification of the HAPC 2000 by Spain.
