Childrens rights

7. 1. The child shall be registered immediately after birth

and shall have the right from birth to a name, the right to acquire a

nationality and, as far as possible, the right to know and be cared for by his

or her parents.

2. States Parties shall ensure the implementation of these rights in

accordance with their national law and their obligations under the relevant

international instruments in this field, in particular where the child would

otherwise be stateless.
