Professor The Honourable Nahum Mushin

AIFS Seminar/Webinar Series

A national apology was offered to people affected by forced adoption on 21 March 2013. In this seminar, Professor Mushin outlines the process leading to the apology, elements of drafting of the document itself and issues that needed to be considered. The essential aspect of any public apology is the concrete measures put in place to overcome the harms and prevent the same from reoccurring. He outlines the tasks of the Working Group he chaired to guide these improvements in services to those affected, and what additional lessons can be learned from past practice.”
