Free text Data compiled by 3 international NGOs to assist the work of the Special Commission on Inter-country Adoption set up by the Hague Conference on Private International Law to draft a Convention on Inter-country Adoption. Branches and associates of the three organizations were contacted in 13 "receiving countries" and 15 "countries of origin" to carry out an investigation into how children's rights and interests are or not served by the existence of a "waiting period" between arrival in the country of adoption and the granting of the adoption order. (Second study on how "independent" adoptions (i.e. those carried out without the intervention of an accredited or authorized adoption agency) serve these same rights and interests). Receiving countries (12) that participated in study: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland, UK, USA. Countries of origin (11): Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Haiti, India, Paraguay, Philippines, Poland, Sri Lanka.
