- This study explores the best interests principle in intercountry adoption. It investigates what role the best interests principle should play in intercountry adoption and the overall conditions required for it to do so in keeping with the rights of the child. Sections include: best interests, human rights and intercountry adoption; the role and purpose of the best interests concept in a human rights context; the changing role and purpose of intercountry adoption; determining children's best interests in intercountry adoption; and ensuring the right conditions for a best interests determination in intercountry adoption. While there is general agreement that the best interests of the child should be the paramount consideration in intercountry adoption, there is no consensus on who decides what is in a child's best interests or on what basis that decision should be made.
