Publication Notice: 'Open Secret: Cash & Coercion in China's IA Program'
After several years of researching and writing, my article, Open Secret: Cash & Coercion in China's IA Program, is available for free download. The article is also available in the current Cumberland Law Review 44.3 (2014): 355-422. This article presents the most in-depth research that has been done to date on China's adoption program, detailing episodes of ethical and legal breaches by orphanages, international response to these episodes, and the actions taken by the Chinese government to mitigate international fallout. It is quite simply the most detailed study ever undertaken. Click here to go to blog.
