This paper will analyze legal regulations in the field of adoption in Sweden, with reference to the position of LGBT population in this area. At the international level, this area is governed by the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Cooperation in inter-country adoption which is ratified by Sweden. Sweden is the country with the largest number based international adoptions per capita. For this reason, it is interesting to see what kind of trend has been present in this area in the last decade and what the reasons are for such a high rate based adoptions.
