The toolkit

Introduction

The Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion has developed this Toolkit to assist civil society in its endeavours to effectively engage the Committee on the Rights of the Child to ensure that States fulfil their obligations under Article 7 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child to promote, respect and fulfil every child’s right to acquire a nationality, and to ensure that no child is stateless.

The Toolkit comprises ten sections which can be read together or individually, depending on the reader’s existing level of knowledge and interest. Each section serves a specific purpose, while also being part of a collection of Tools which provide civil society actors, including NGOs, National Human Rights Institutions and Ombudspersons with a wide range of information and advice.
