Free text Transcript of presentation by Chantal Saclier of International Social Service at a Seminar on adoption in Mexico (November 1997). The author presents the problematic of adoption which should not be seen as a solution to situations of poverty in which children and their families are caught. It should, instead, be inscribed as one of the alternatives envisaged as a measure of protection for the child in situations of abandonment or neglect. Priority should still be given to measures of prevention of abandonment, family rehabilitation and temporary fostering, with institutionalization being of short duration before permanent placement nationally or internationally. Emphasis on the ethical principles to be followed when an adoption is considered the best solution for a child. Presentation of the Hague Convention of 1993, its guiding principles and mechanisms for implementation.
