Concluding observations on the combined seventh and eighth periodic reports of Guinea

Nationality

40. The Committee notes with concern that certain provisions of the Civil Code continue to contradict article 9 of the Convention and discriminate against Guinean women, since only men transmit their nationality automatically to their children.

41. The Committee recommends that the State party expeditiously amend the Civil Code so as to bring it into conformity with article 9 of the Convention.
