This suggestion came closest to what I was looking for in terms of context - many thanks for both suggestions!
Also, I recently received a copy of the Van den End "Legal Lexicon", and find it extremely useful - I'd recommend it to anyone working in the field of legal translations.

Explanation:
Vervreemding is zowel 'estrangement' als 'alienation' en, zoals vaak het geval is met Engelse 'doublets', is het verschil in betekenis miniem en geheel en al afhankelijk van de rest van de tekst. Voor zover ik het stukje tekst kan beoordelen gaat mijn smaak uit naar 'estrangement actions'
