Online seminar on Non-biological Children and Circulation of Birth Certificates


On September 20, 2021, the European Law Institute (ELI) – Family and Succession Law SIG will organise an online seminar on Non-biological Children and Circulation of Birth Certificates. The seminar will address highly topical issues, especially with regard to the mutual recognition of certain public documents among States. These are issues closely related to the Regulation EU 2016/1191 and that put it to the test, bringing out its potential but also its deficiencies.

Speakers at the seminar:

YUKO NISHITANI, Treatment and Effects of Birth Certificates on Non-biological Parentage – with a Special Focus on the HCCH Parentage/Surrogacy Project 

ALINA TRYFONIDOU, Disharmonies in the Cross-border Recognition of Birth Certificates of Non-biological Children: what can the EU do? 

ALEXANDER SCHUSTER, The Impact of Freedom of Movement and Fundamental Rights on the Circulation of Birth Certificates
