This book deals with adoption laws and practices in small island developing states in the Pacific. The countries in question have plural legal systems, with the process and practice of adoption and its closest customary law equivalent operating side by side. In most cases there is an insufficiently developed relationship between the two systems, which has resulted in a number of problems. Additionally international law adds a layer of complexity while the size and remotenenss of these states present challenges for reform.
