International Adoption among Families in the United States: Considerations of Social Justice.
Hollingsworth, Leslie Doty
Social Work, v48 n2 p209-17 Apr 2003
The practice of international adoption of children is critiqued, using an egalitarian concept of a distributive method of social justice. From this perspective, international adoption may be perceived as contradictory to principles of social justice by ignoring the social context within which it occurs. Possible solutions are critiqued and implications are discussed for social work policy advocacy, practice, and research. (Contains 24 references.) (GCP)
