dc.description.abstractWhen Australia ratified the CRC in 1990, it marked a shift in public policy and service provision to a more rights-based approach for children. The CRC would compel legislatures to ensure that domestic adoption legislation made adequate provision for the wishes of children who were old enough to voice them. Concurrently, the the adoption reform movement had already worked significant changes in both the policy and practice of domestic adoption. Former provisions for ‘secret and sealed’ adoptions which had prevailed up to the mid-1970s were challenged from several directions and parties to adoption other than adoptive parents – namely mothers and children – were accorded more rights under these reforms. Unfortunately, the rights-based reforms made to domestic adoptions in the mid 1980s were largely ignored when it came to inter-country adoption.en_US
