42 U.S.C § 11611 requires the U.S. Department of State to submit to Congress an annual report on countries that are not complying with their treaty obligations under the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Parental Child Abduction (“Convention”). This “compliance report” identifies countries that are “Not Compliant with the Convention” and countries that show “Patterns of Noncompliance with the Convention”. The report lists cases that have remained open and active for 18 months or more after the convention application was filed. The report also lists countries with Convention enforcement concerns.
