Abstract

International policy positions regarding children without parental care have far-reaching implications for children's lives. A position advocated passionately in the field of international social work and children's rights argues that children without parental care should not be cared for in institutions. This is for good reason, as research indicates that institutions, particularly for young children, breach children's rights, do not meet their developmental needs, and consistently result in poor outcomes for children. These serious concerns remain highly relevant given that institutions continue to be used as the sole placement option throughout much of the developing world for children without parental care.
