Talk Africa: Foreign Adoption of African Children

Jerry Omondi - CGTN

This video from CGTN's Talk Africa explores Kenya's recent decision to ban the adoption of children by foreign nationals. "Kenya’s ban follows an earlier one by Ethiopia last year and is part of a growing global trend towards either complete elimination or sharp restriction of trans-boundary child adoption," says the video. "Foreign child adoption in Africa is an emotive subject," the video continues, "with concerns raised over child-trafficking and abuse, cultural displacement, and unregulated adoption processes." The video features a discussion among three different child protection and adoption experts in the region.
