Interview with Nigel Cantwell

For decades the adoption lobby denied that the Hague Adoption Convention and the Guidelines for Alternative Care were tools of the adoption industrial complex.

Both bring in ‘permanency’, which is adoption.

This ‘permanency’ was not included in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The US and France had wanted to include that. There was, however, no agreement.

Finally, after all these years the word is out. By the architect of both the Hague Adoption Convention and the Guidelines.

Who brought permanency into the picture? The Adoption Lobby, stupid!

Hear hear!
