Free text Updated version of the former "Manual for municipal social welfare committees" (1991) produced by the NIA to guide social welfare officers in making decisions on intercountry adoptions. It concerns assessment of the suitability of prospective adoptive parents, as well as the best interest of the foreign child in being adopted in Sweden. The handbook contains "discussion and deliberation, but also clear guidelines and recommendations".
