The Rudd Adoption Research Program at UMass Amherst is excited to announce the launch of a new Publication Series, The Future of Adoption!

Just as adoption practice and policy have changed substantially in recent decades, so will they surely continue to evolve into the future.  In April, 2018, the Rudd Program convened a conference on this topic, which generated considerable interest and discussion.  In order to make insights from the conference more widely available and extend the discussion to some additional topics, we have been working with a talented group of authors to develop a series of user-friendly papers for broad dissemination. Beginning in early March, and continuing every other Tuesday through May, The Rudd Adoption Research Program will release sets of thematically-related papers. Check out the Rudd Adoption Research Program website for pdf versions of the papers available to download at no cost. More information can be found here
