This article analyses intercountry adoption within the international human rights law framework. It uses Romania as a case study, one of the main countries of origin throughout the 1990s, after the fall of the Iron Curtain, and one of the first countries to ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption, none of which had an effect on reducing corrupt practices in intercountry adoption.
