Adoption Rates by Country 2024

Notes:
- The Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, also known as the Hague Abduction Convention, is an international agreement that establishes guidelines for adoptions, such as agreeing that a child abducted by a parent and illegally taken to another country should be promptly returned to their previous country of residence. The Hague guidelines promote regulation and fairness in the adoption process and also safeguard against child trafficking.
