Free text This collective work co-ordinated by Isabelle Leblic, sheds light on the multiplicity of forms of filiation, placement and adoption around the world. If in the West, the lines of filiation are generally exclusive and mostly founded on a biological tie – each child has only one father and one mother, usually the two beings who have conceived the child – this conception is not universal. In numerous societies, a child can have several fathers and mothers. Do these multiple conceptions of filiation have an influence on the practice of adoption or placement (the authors talk of transfer/circulation of children) ? Are there forms of filiation that lend themselves more than others to these practices ? Such are the questions that are explored by the authors. What emerges from it, in particular, is a confrontation between traditional «adoption» and inter-country adoption. This last concept is very Western, as repeatedly emphasised in the book.
