Forum for Adoption Politics is an organisation for everyone who questions the system of transnational adoption as it is being practised in Denmark today. The mission of the organization is, among other things, to position adoptees as experts on their own lived experiences believing that adoptee voices should, as a minimum, become an equal part in the formulation of adoption-related policies. We wish to foster debate which in the long run will lead to radical reform of the system of transnational adoption.
