India: Child adoption: relevant & contextual policy required
Morung Express – March 26, 2017
Taking care of one’s own child and an adopted child are two completely different matters. As tragic as this attitude may be, it has come to fore with problems related to child adoption rising in Nagaland State. Non-adherence to law as well as the lack of a Nagaland State child adoption policy that is “relevant, contextual and culturally friendly” has led to wide lapses in ensuring child rights in Nagaland leading to increased destitution among children.
