Title Perspectives of Transracial Adoption: a Case Study of South Africa
Author Nielsen, Carolina
Date 2019
English abstract
South Africa has been under apartheid regime characterized by racial segregation. As a result, transracial adoption only became legal in 1991. The aim of this thesis is to analyze how transracial adoption has been perceived in South Africa. A post-colonialism theory together with a critical race theory will be used in order to understand the phenomenon that has taken place. The results of this thesis show that, even though there is a need for further research, attitudes towards this practice have been generally positive. This demonstrates that the country is slowly overcoming the lasting effects of apartheid in terms of acceptance of transracial adoption.
