A government committee in the Netherlands studying abuses in intercountry adoption has issued its report, and we are providing English copies here so that adoptees, friends, and allies are able to download and read it.
A note of deep thanks and recognition to all of the Dutch intercountry adoptees who participated in the committee’s work, provided testimony and accounts of their lived experiences, and ultimately made the reports possible.
The full report and summary is also in Dutch and runs more than 160 pages. The website of the Committee Investigating Intercountry adoption now appears to be discontinued, but the reports remain in the possession and control of the Dutch Ministry of Justice.
