Course Description

Background:
Adoption is a social issue, involving legal, social, psychological and diplomatic skills. It also involves considerable input from both social services and the community. The aim of the session is to provide a deeper understanding of the legal framework of adoption and all the aspects of the process, from the adoptive family's request for consent up to the final decision.

Approach:
The course aims to provide an overview of international and domestic adoption, even if the latter is numerically less significant. The approach is multi-disciplinary. Ordinary adoption and the specific problems that it poses will also be dealt with.
