Queering Wills – Inheritance Arrangements in Sexually Marginalised Groups

Forskningsoutput: Bok/rapportBok

Sammanfattning

I will discuss the concept of inheritance institution, the history of queer inheritance, the changing legal landscape around LGBTQI+ issues in Europe and beyond, and the significance of inheritance for social justice and widening economic gaps in society at the era of finance capitalism, political populism, ’homonationalism’ and neo-conservative politics/polities that are pushing sexuality off-stage and returning care-giving, solidarity and other everyday support from the state and queer communities to a more private sphere, to families, in (gay) marriages and for women (in general, daughters, and in particular, lesbian parents in Rainbow families).
I will also explain the impact of different legal cultures and cultural imaginaries around wills in different European countries (i.e. legal share vs. testamentary freedom). I will also ask what kinship has to do with succession law, and what is meant by the concept of ’inheritance family’ in different national contexts.
Finally, I will open up the question if will-writing and inheritance system is ‘heteronormative’, and if it belongs only to the bourgeoisie; and whether or why we need to go beyond these implications in the contemporary legal and political era.
