Teitz on International Child Abduction
From BBC RADIO 4: "The Stolen Families"
July 22, 2012: John Waite investigates the growing number of international child abduction cases where a parent flees abroad with their children to keep custody and evade the law. So does the law need strengthening to protect the rights of the 'left-behind' parent? And how effective is the international convention which is designed to ensure children are returned home quickly?
RWU Law Professor Louise Ellen Teitz, currently serving as First Secretary of the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Conference, is interviewed for the documentary beginning at around 11:00 minutes, and again around 23:30.
