Birth Registration: A Comparative Report Prepared for UNICEF (1)

Published: 1/Nov/2015
Source: DLA Piper / UNICEF

The purpose of this report is to compare the legal frameworks governing birth registration in eleven jurisdictions. Birth registration is the process by which a child’s birth is recorded in the civil register by the applicable government authority. It provides the first legal recognition of the child.

The questionnaires have been prepared by lawyers from the UK and other jurisdictions performing desk based research. We have endeavoured to make the questionnaires as comprehensive as possible, but they should not be regarded as exhaustive.

Countries covered in Africa: Angola, Kenya, Mozambique, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
