In July 2020, Intercountry Adoptee Voices gathered the opinion of more than 60 adoptees, asking two simple questions :
-What should authorities and bodies do to respond to specific cases of illicit practices?
-What should authorities and bodies do to prevent and respond to patterns of illicit practices?
An objective of this paper is to break down the perception that illicit intercountry adoptions affect just a few. Another objective is to attempt to learn from the past and provide solutions for the future, as well as ensure those from historical intercountry adoptions, are provided for in terms of services and support. A third, is to demonstrate that the remedy needs to deal with the wrong.Lynelle Long, Founder and President of ICAV
