International child abduction

International child abduction

The current procedure of incoming applications in the Netherlands, England & Wales, Sweden and Switzerland (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

This research evaluates the current procedure in incoming applications of international child abduction in the Netherlands and places it in a comparative perspective. International child abduction occurs when, in violation of the custody laws of the country of habitual residence, a child is removed to or detained in another country. The research focuses on incoming cases (an abduction from abroad to the Netherlands) and not on outgoing cases (an abduction from the Netherlands to another country).
