Establishing a framework for international adoptions

Home / LEMUN 2022 / Committees and issues / Establishing a framework for international adoptions

After a string of controversies (accusations of among other things human trafficking, child kidnapping and money laundering schemes) regarding international adoption, some Member States have prohibited international adoptions entirely. Not all international adoption, however, can be linked to human trafficking or money laundering. There are many orphans who legitimately need to find adoptive families and cannot find those families in their home countries. In many countries there are also people who want to adopt children, but cannot find any in their own country. The committee should try to develop a framework for international adoptions, ensuring that potentially adopted children are not the victim of human trafficking, kidnapping or money laundring schemes and that any violators are found and punished.
