The starting point is the need to respond by law to the new social realities created in market society. The study examines the characters and fundamental contents of the Convention: its origins and objectives, scope of the convention, jurisdiction of the authorities for the protection of the adult, the law applicable to measures of protection, the mandate in case of incapacity, as well as a reference to the recognition and enforcement and to the co-operation. The findings, highlights, by contrast, non-membership of the instrument to the trend of the current private international law of the European Union to the "reification" of international family relations.
