Importance of civil registration system

Human rights are perhaps the most precious heritage of man. In order to implement the various covenants to provide for the rights of individuals, and to safeguard these rights, it is necessary to establish the identity of individuals and their relationships. The different civil registration documents play an essential role in providing evidence of personal identity, age, parental filiation, nationality, marital status, etc.

This study traces the international efforts to promote, protect and to gain realization of human rights. It shows how the various records of civil status serve the individual through his lifetime in enjoying the rights to which he is entitled.
