dc.description.abstract OBJECTIVES: The authors focused on the attitudes of the Czech public towards the international adoption of minors from and into the Czech Republic. THEORETICAL BASE: 500 children aged from 1 to 9 were adopted internationally since 2000 according to the Czech Office for International Legal Protection of Children. METHODS: The research was based on a quantitative methodological approach using explorational methods of questioning. The representative research sample involved the Czech adult population (N = 1.050). Quota selection was realized according to sex, age, education, and place of residence. OUTCOMES: The results suggest that respondents largely do not support the international adoption of minors from the Czech Republic (M = 6.7, SD = 2.89) and into the Czech Republic (M = 6.2, SD = 2.84). A strong positive correlation was found between support of international adoption from and into the Czech Republic (r rho = .70, p < .001, r 2 = 49%). The level of support for international adoption varied by region of the Czech Republic and type of household SOCIAL WORK IMPLICATIONS: Many indications imply the absence of greater awareness among the Czech public about the system of adoption, by which the presumption of the authors concerning so-called white space which should be covered © 2019, Czech Association of Educators in Social Work.
