Abstract

In this article, the author examines Russian attitudes and policies toward international adoption and human trafficking—two trends not regularly addressed in discussions of the demographic problems facing Russia. The author argues that differences in the way the two kinds of outflows are treated are not appropriate given their economic and demographic consequences.
