Manifesto for Ethical Intercountry Adoption

The Manifesto for Ethical Intercountry Adoption builds specifically on the underlying principles of the 1993 Hague Convention and seeks to promote ethical practices by all adoption stakeholders, whether in the receiving country or country of origin, to better protect all children.  ISS fully acknowledges that international texts such as the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the 1993 Hague Convention set out essential legal frameworks for the respect of children's rights in intercountry adoption matters.  This guide is not in any way meant to replace these texts, but rather to offer an additional resource to the ever-changing landscape of international adoption, based on the organization's extensive experience and expertise in the field.

The Manifesto is Available in English, French and Spanish and is downloadable in Flip book version.
