Free text Commentaries on the Recommendation adopted by the Special Commission of the Hague Conference on Private International Law meeting in October 1994, regarding the intercountry adoption of refugee children. Among criticisms to this Recommendation is its non-binding nature, as opposed to a Protocol to the Hague Convention of 1993 which would require States to comply by adapting their legislation. The author also points out the lack of protection provided to children who have become displaced for reasons other than armed conflict or discrimination - as in situations of natural disasters.
