POST-CRISIS ACTIONS TO AVOID INTERNATIONAL CHILD TRAFFICKING

Abstract

Economic and criminal issues plague intercountry adoption. During a crisis, the supply of available children increases, the demand for those children increases, and the intentions of those transporting the children is difficult, if not impossible, to assess. Allowing adoptions to take place under these conditions propagates the parade of horrors which the Hague Convention and Optional Protocol were created to avoid. Under these situations, the restrictions on intercountry adoption should be heightened and transportation of children should cease, while the number of criminal investigations and penalties for child trafficking should be increased.
