The conference "Towards the Well-Being of the Child Through the Hague Child Abduction and Protection of Children Conventions: An Asia Pacific Symposium, Macao, China" will take place on Thursday 25 and Friday 26 June 2015 at the Macao Science Centre, Macao SAR, China. The event is jointly sponsored by the Law Reform and International Law Bureau of the Macao SAR, the Department of Justice of the Hong Kong SAR, and the Hague Conference.
The Symposium will focus on the complementarity between the 1980 Hague Child Abduction and 1996 Hague Protection of Children Conventions. It will additionally provide a forum for Central Authority delegates and Family Court Judges from Asia-Pacific countries to share experiences and exchange views on the implementation of the 1980 Child Abduction Convention and (where applicable) the 1996 Protection of Children Convention in their jurisdictions. Finally, the Symposium will consider the utility of mediation in furthering the objectives of the 1980 and 1996 Conventions, especially where states not parties to one or both Conventions are involved.
