see the article (in French) by Régis Schlagdenhauffen on the website of the Encyclopedia for a Natural History of Europe (EHNE).

The LawsAndFamilies Database

The LawsAndFamilies aims to document, highlight and analyse the developments and diversities concerning same-sex families. It does so from three perspectives: law, statistics, sociology. The database has three parts:
- The main component of LawsAndFamilies is an interactive database. It covers 50 years of legal development, on 69 issues, in 21 European countries. This legal database looks at marriage, registered partnership, and cohabitation. For same-sex and different-sex couples.
- The second component is a collection of statistical data on same-sex marriage and partnership in 12 countries: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.
- The third component of the database is a sociological analysis of interviews held in Iceland, Italy, France and Spain: 108 people were interviewed about the legal and social recognition of their same-sex families.
