Final approval came through in Japan this week for the country’s adoption of the Hague Convention, an international treaty that is designed to settle cross-border disputes over the custody of children. The cabinet of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe endorsed a decision by both houses of parliament last year to sign the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. The convention will take effect in Japan on April 1, 2014. The United States became a signatory to the HC in 1988.
