Roots Research Centre is a Non-Governmental Organisation that advocates for children’s rights and the rights of adult adoptees. It is a member of the Eurochild network and National Coordinator of the Opening Doors Campaign for Europe’s Children. The organisation was founded in 1999 in Athens. It originally focused on the rights of adult adoptees and supported their search for their biological roots. The experience gained in this field led the organisation to broaden its scope towards supporting deinstitutionalisation in Greece.
