Chapter Summary

The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC Committee) has emphasized a positive obligation of States Parties to the International Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989 (CRC) to make sure that children are registered properly even in situations where the access to, for example, nomadic families or rural areas in the country is very difficult. The CRC Committee has emphasised that even if children remain stateless or are illegal residents, they should enjoy all rights under the CRC and the State should simplify the procedures for legalizing their residence. Some examples have been mentioned of instances when States enter into reservations concerning the application of Article 7 of the CRC saying that it will be applied in accordance with their domestic citizenship laws.
