They’ve escaped their abuser. This international treaty will drag them back to him.
The 1980 Hague Convention was intended to deal with fathers who abduct their children across international borders without the mother’s permission. It has been weaponised. In over 75% of cases, abusive fathers now use it to compel children, and therefore mothers, to return to the country they have fled. The Hague Mothers campaign aims to end that terrifying injustice.
Find out how from our international panel: Adrienne Barnett (UK), Miranda Kaye (Australia), Sudha Shetty (US), Nicole Fidler (US), Jeffrey Edleson (US), Ben Keith (NZ). Q&A support from Kim Fawcett (UK) and Sonja Ayeb-Karlsson.
