1. These research reports form the second phase of a research project on birth registration law prepared by DLA Piper for UNICEF. Phase One was completed in November 2015.
2. The purpose of this report is to compare the legal frameworks governing birth registration in eight 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.
3. The questionnaires have been prepared by lawyers from the UK performing desk based research. We have endeavoured to make the questionnaires as comprehensive as possible, but they should not be regarded as exhaustive.
Countries in Africa covered: Chad, Ethiopia, Guinea Bissau, Lesotho, Malawi, Tanzania.
