    abstract = "The author examines the internal application of cooperative international instruments aimed at coordinating national administrative efforts to combat a particular problem. More specifically, she considers the effectiveness of the Hague Convention on the civil aspects of international child abduction and the regional or bilateral agreements that contain obligations to combat the cross-border kidnapping of children. The Convention requires the immediate return of any child habitually resident in a contracting state removed to, or retained in, another contracting state in violation of custody arrangements. This guarantees the effective protection of custody orders and visitation rights existing in the child’s state of habitual residence while in other contracting states. Though it is the author’s opinion that the response to cross-border abduction is still insufficient in practical terms, the author concludes that the Convention is an important and useful legal instrument that plays a major part in the international discourse surrounding the fundamental rights of children. While she admits that the area largely depends on the goodwill of the individuals involved in child abduction cases, the author stresses that states must face their responsibilities and take all the concrete steps necessary to meet their international obligations.",
