In the 21st century, family creation often involves many more stakeholders than the nuclear family. Particularly in the area of International Child Adoption (ICA), family creation is a cross-border enterprise that implicates local, national, and global politics and conflicts. In his latest article, published in our Spring 2019 issue, Shani King traces the strengths and infirmities of past and present ICA frameworks and the different national goals embodied in each, and posits that ICA and immigration law should not be thought of as discrete issues, but indeed as two sides of the same coin, embodying the same national stressors and overarching goals. Dean Kerry Abrams and Prof. Kathryn Bradley will analyze King's article using their own expertise in immigration law, family creation law, and children's rights and invite discussion on the creation of a compassionate ICA framework that supports the rights of the child in an increasingly globalized world.
