This is a small collection of articles in English relating to child abduction in China. It is in no way “complete” and will be updated somewhat frequently. I have separated the articles into rather broad and imprecise categories to slightly simplify the organization of this page.
Please note that readers of Chinese will find much more to read on this topic in Chinese than is available in English. For some places to start, feel free to email me. Note also that some of these articles are opinion pieces and don’t necessarily represent my opinions.
Articles with stars next to them are especially recommended.
