Hastings International and Comparative Law Review


Parental child abduction has been on the increase in recent years, both within the United States and abroad. This Article considers the impact on this problem of the United States recent ratification and expected implementation of the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction. In addition, the author analyzes the relationship between the Child Abduction Convention and various domestic statutes, including the federal Parental Kidnapping Protection Act and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act, which has been enacted in all 50 states.
