Les spécificités de l'adoption internationale dans la zone Océan Indien

Abstract : A few years ago, reunionese candidates to international adoption were in a favorable position compared to their mainland counterparts. The geographic and cultural proximity of Reunion Island with countries such as Madagascar and Mauritius where lots of children are available for adoption made adoption easier. Things have changed since the Hague international convention on international adoption broadened its range. Eventually, it will advocate for the suppression of individual procedures, which will put the reunionese in a difficult position since no authorized institution for adoption (OAA) received the agreement on the island. Besides, resorting to the French Adoption Agency (AFA) is only possible for countries from whom it received the agreement. Furthermore, the lengthy procedures these countries of origin will have to implement to comply with the Hague Convention will increase the wait times for adoption, all the while reducing the number of adoptable children.
