To find out how well the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction has achieved its objectives, Cardiff Law School, in collaboration with the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Conference, has conducted a statistical survey of all applications made under the 1980 Convention to inform each of the last three Special Commissions held at The Hague. The latest of these surveys was of all applications made under the Convention in 2008. Sixty of the then eighty-one Contracting States participated in the survey. This article discusses the major findings of the 2008 survey, concentrating on overall numbers, outcome, and timing, with respect to return and access applications. Also considered is the impact of Council Regulation (EC) No. 2201/2003 of 27 November 2003 (the Brussels II a Regulation), a regional instrument that is binding on all Member States of the European Union, except Denmark (Brussels II a States).
