Concluding observations on the fourth periodic report of Côte d’Ivoire



37.The Committee notes the adoption of Law No. 2013-654 of 13 September 2013 amending articles 12, 13, 14 and 16 of Law No. 61-415 of 14 December 1961 on the Nationality Code, which guarantees equal treatment of women and men in the acquisition of nationality. It is concerned, however, that certain provisions of the Nationality Code discriminate against women, for example, on the transfer of nationality to spouses or children in certain cases.

38. The Committee recommends that the State party amend or repeal all remaining provisions of the Nationality Code that discriminate against women.
