What is it about?

What are the challenges of solving international child abductions?

Are parental child abductions going unpunished? Canadian and U.S. data suggest most international child abductions are committed by a family member. Typically, the parent left behind has sole custody and believes they have legal protection when their kids are taken abroad. Instead, they find themselves stuck in a slow and expensive bureaucratic system desperately searching for help. We discuss the challenges of solving international child abduction cases at 1930GMT.
