«Practices and perspectives in intercountry adoptions»

The Hellenic Branch of the International Social Service (ISS) has recently started the conduction of an important research in the field of the intercountry adoptions in Greece, attempting to explore a field that up to this day remains essentially uncharted.

The research, which is a part of the «Practices and perspectives in the intercountry adoptions» project, is realized within the framework of the Active citizens fund program and it is implemented by the International Social Service-Hellenic Branch. Its main goal is to investigate thoroughly the practices and the obstacles in the actualization of the intercountry adoptions that are conducted in Greece, covering the years of 2011-2019.

The research will be conducted with the use of questionnaires that will be addressed, on one hand, towards the parents that have already adopted children transnationally and, on the other hand, towards the professionals that are employed in the responsible organizations that operate in the scope of the intercountry adoptions in our country.
