During the fourth Special Commission, ISS/IRC launched its Manifesto for Ethical Intercountry Adoption which, based on the guiding principles of the 1993 Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption, intends to promote ethical practices in order to protect the children better as well as anyone involved and ensure that intercountry adoption is a protection measure that is used only in the child’s best interests. The Manifesto invites intercountry adoption stakeholders to reflect on the fundamental issues involved in adoption ethics. The considerations proposed are based on both applicable international standards and on multiple missions completed by members of the ISS/IRC team in countries of origin.
Available in English, French, and Spanish.
