ISS actively participated at the 18th Nordic meeting organised by the Nordic Adoption Council in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands. This event was a great occasion to bring together all the adoption actors of the Nordic countries
(Denmark, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Finland, Norway and Sweden) to strengthen existing ties, create new opportunities for cooperation and exchange promising practices, particularly in post adoption support. The presentation of ISS on the Legal and practical considerations for research of origins- with a special focus on illegal adoptions and social media was warmly welcomed, generating a very interesting discussion amongst the participants. The meeting was an excellent occasion to learn about new aspects in adoption procedures as well as to consolidate our strong relationship with these countries that have been financing the ISS/IRC for several years.
