Adopting The Rights Of The Child: A Study On Intercountry Adoption And Its Influence On Child Protection In Nepal
PDF File Size: 1.14 MB | Download   
The best interests of the child must be the guiding principle for all those working with children, no matter how emotive or complex the issue. This principle is the essence of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which Nepal has ratified. Adoption has always been a sensitive issue, with opinions often strongly polarised for or against inter country adoption. The authors of this study are not trying to make a case either for or against intercountry adoption. It is simply an attempt to examine the situation in Nepal impartially, bearing in mind the best interests of the child. This study indicates that adoption in Nepal does not always take the best interests of the child into consideration . For instance, only four out of every hundred adoptions are domestic adoptions. Many of the children put up for adoption are not orphaned in the true sense of the word but are separated from their families. Siblings, even twins, have been separated. The study finds that the standards of care, protection and services in many child centres do not fully safeguard the human rights of the child.
