Institute of Open Adoption Studies

In March 2016, the University of Sydney was selected by the NSW Government to establish and maintain an Institute of Open Adoption Studies. The Institute will lead quality, independent research into open adoption to inform policy, and professional practice in the field.

The Institute will support organisations that work in adoption and establish and encourage a change in culture within the child protection sector around permanency planning and adoption.
