The Future of Children in International Law

Friday, February 22, 2013

Uncertainty surrounding the legal protection of children jeopardizes their quality of life. When children are subjected to trafficking and abduction, displaced from their families, and ensnared in complex adoption matters, their countries of origin and the international community as a whole suffer. This symposium will bring academics and practitioners together to examine how laws affect children on an international level including trafficking, abductions and adoptions, and how the law can help improve the lives of children. The Southwestern Journal of International Law will publish papers and transcript from this symposium.
