joint demarches EU/US on encouraging third countries' - Hague Adoption Convention

La demande est réussie.

Dear Secretariat General,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

Wikileaks revealed the below:

FEEDBACK ON PROPOSALS
---------------------

¶4. (SBU) Richir then addressed each of the five areas for
potential cooperation which had been vetted in Washington
(Ref D) prior to being presented at the Senior Level Informal
JHA planning meeting in Madrid (Ref C).

-- On intercountry adoptions, the Member States sought
clarity on how the United States viewed adoptions as a form
of migration. The USEU representatives explained the goal of
delivering joint demarches encouraging third countries to
accede to or enforce the provisions of the Hague Convention
on Intercountry Adoptions, as well as developing common
positions toward countries with serious adoption fraud
concerns. All of these measures help prevent trafficking in
children, which is a form of migration, albeit illegal and
involuntary. Recent questions and concerns about loosening
international adoption procedures for children orphaned in
the 12 January earthquake in Haiti highlight the importance
of this issue and its relevance to the Migration Dialogue.
The USEU team cited the recent series of U.S.-EU joint
demarches to third countries on the Hague Convention on
Preventing International Parental Child Abduction as a
positive example of what can be accomplished together.

Hereby I request to make public all documents, internal and external, related to the above goal of delivering joint demarches encouraging third countries to accede to or enforce the provisions of the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoptions, as well as developing common
positions toward countries with serious adoption fraud
concerns.

Yours faithfully,

Arun Dohle
