From CARI’s experience and knowledge this report is missing many other countries who also fail to comply, enforce and demonstrate patterns of noncompliance year after year after year. For this reason we believe this report is far from accurate. What it does show is how large the problem is of International Parental Child Abduction (IPCA).
It’s a worldwide epidemic problem. A problem that is ignored and is only getting worse.
