The Need for a Convention

On 25 October 1980 a Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction was signed at The Hague. The English text of the Convention is reproduced in Appendix A, below. The Convention was drawn up under the auspices of the Hague Conference on Private International Law, the specialist inter-governmental agency working in that field and in which the Commonwealth Secretariat enjoys Observer status; the inclusion of the subject of international child abduction in the agenda of the Hague Conference was largely the result of an initiative by the Canadian Government.
