Our ground-breaking international webinar draws on expertise from Australia, New Zealand, the UK and US, to make the case for change in relation to the 1980 Hague Convention. The Convention was intended to deal with fathers who abduct children across international borders without the mother’s permission. It has been weaponised. Now over 75% of cases are brought by fathers against mothers – the majority are fleeing domestic violence. Our experts explain the problems, and the often brutal reality for mothers caught up in a Hague case. They also propose solutions which could help ensure the safety and wellbeing of mothers and children, and lead to a more just outcome.
