UNICEF reiterates calls to halt Inter-country adoptions in Nepal
PDF File Size: 629 KB | Download   
UNICEF has endorsed the findings by the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Conference delivered to the Government of Nepal today – to suspend inter country adoptions here.
The report on Inter-country adoption in Nepal follows an invitation by the Government of Nepal to the Hague Conference to undertake a mission to the country in November 2009 after Nepal had signed the Hague Adoption Convention earlier, in April 2009. In signing the Hague Adoption Convention, Nepal undertook to bring its adoption policies in line with guidelines laid out in the Convention with the intention of ratifying at a later date.
The 2008 study by UNICEF and Terre des hommes Foundation entitled “Adopting the Rights of the Child” found that around 60 percent of the children up for adoption were not actually orphans but were separated from their families and that a culture of child abuse including the abduction, trafficking and sale of children had flourished due to poor controls.
