Headline: Netherlands violated children’s right to acquire nationality, UN Human Rights Committee says
In an unprecedented decision, the UN Human Rights Committee ruled on Tuesday that the Netherlands had violated a child’s rights by entering “unknown nationality” in its civil registers. However, according to these independent UN experts, such a reference prevented him, under Dutch law, from “being registered as a stateless person and therefore from benefiting from international protection as a stateless child”.
