Task

The United Nations is holding a special conference on the rights of adoptive children. Since so many Chinese children are adopted by Canadian families, you have been asked to investigate this situation and make recommendations.

In order to make realistic recommendations, you must first investigate the facts. You also need to try to see those facts from all viewpoints: everyone believes that they are doing the best they can for these children, but have very different views on what “the best” means.

Despite these differing viewpoints, you realize that your recommendations will be much more powerful if your entire delegation is able to achieve consensus, and present a united voice about what you think needs to be done to best protect the rights of children.
