Adoption from Viet Nam: Finding and Recommendations of an assessment

The 82 page report is based on an independent assessment by ISS in 2009, commissioned by UNICEF Viet Nam and by the Department of Adoption of the Ministry of Justice of Viet Nam. The main aims were to firstly identify and address problems in the adoption processes, with a view to assisting Viet Nam in its preparations to accede to the Convention on Protection of Children and Co-Operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (THC-93), and secondly, review the new draft law on adoption, and propose any relevant amendments. The report includes a number of observations about the adoption situation in the country as well as makes diverse recommendations targeting key actors not only within Vietnam but also those outside including receiving countries, agencies and international organizations.
