This paper explores South Korea’s laws and policies, which nullified the rights of adoptees, and it calls for receiving countries to assume co-responsibility to restore these rights.

A previous study showed that the detection rate of behavioral problems in the Hui was far higher than in the LBC of the Han nationality.

The aims of this present study are to explore the prevalence of IBPs and the influencing factors among the Hui LBC in the rural areas of China.
