Hagued is a space for women and children to share their experiences of the Hague Convention. The Hague Convention is an international law that aims to return children to their home country so custody can be sorted out. Unfortunately, it often fails the women it is supposed to protect.
Many women who have been accused of international child abduction have only fled to escape the violent fathers of their children. But the Hague Convention doesn't take into consideration why the mother fled. Escaping from family violence rarely works as a defence in Hague Convention cases.
