LOPEZ-CONTRERAS, Rony Eulalio. The best interests of the child: Definition and content. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2015, vol.13, n.1, pp.51-70. ISSN 1692-715X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11600/1692715x.1311210213.

This article is analytic and is the result of a consistent review of the literature and case law concerning the principle of the best interests of the child. The best interests of the child, both in doctrine and case law, has been redefined over time, but with very little content included these definitions. This article highlights three essential elements of the principle of the best interests of the child that should be applied in each case: the child’s wishes, their environment and the predictablity of their circumstances. Identifying and analyzing these three elements in each concrete case can lead to better decisions being made as well as a better explanation of the best interests of the child principle.

Palavras-chave : best interests of the child; rights of the child.
