dc.description.abstract Aotearoa New Zealand’s approach to intercountry adoptions requires urgent reform. Although there are very few intercountry adoptions to New Zealand each year, the current law utterly fails the children who are involved. There are significant disparities between children adopted under the Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in respect of Intercountry Adoption 1993 (the Hague Convention) and those who are not. The law also fails to protect the child’s welfare and best interests and disadvantages some children when they try to obtain citizenship or birth certificates. This article steps through the grave state of the law currently, highlights the disparities and suggests valuable reforms. This is in light of the Ministry of Justice’s current review of adoption law.
