Laws on ‘forced adoption’ cause controversy in Europe, says leading judge

A leading judge says he is “acutely conscious” of concerns voiced in parts of Europe about the “forced adoption” of children in England and Wales.


Sir James Munby, the most senior family court judge in England and Wales, says English law allows children to be adopted without their parents’ consent – and that practice is “unusual” in Europe.


He says there is “no shirking” the fact that the English approach has given “rise to controversy” abroad – particularly in Europe.


But Sir James says there can be no suggestion that the domestic law of England and Wales is incompatible with the UK’s international obligations or its obligations under the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
