Toolkit for the HCCH 1980 Child Abduction Convention in times of COVID-19

Following the publication of the HCCH COVID-19 Toolkit, the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Convention has prepared a Toolkit for the effective application of the 1980 Child Abduction Convention in times of COVID-19.
This focused Toolkit presents key aspects and specific HCCH resources relevant in the face of the challenges posed by the COVID-19 situation in the context of the 1980 Child Abduction Convention. Recalling that the interests of the child are paramount, this Toolkit aims to help guarantee the safe and prompt return of wrongfully removed or retained children to the State of habitual residence, assist Contracting Parties in the effective execution of their obligations under the Convention, and ensure better access to justice through the continued and effective operation of the 1980 Child Abduction Convention.
