ICPE to strengthen activities in the area of civil status registration in member countries

On Monday, 20 July 2015, ICPE met with Ms Alenka Prvinšek Persoglio, a high-level legal expert on citizenship, civil registration and migration policy and Vice President of the Interact4C, to discuss further cooperation in the field of civil status registration. ICPE began to delve into the all-permeating and increasingly important subject of IT-supported systems of civil status registration by conducting two development assistance training programmes for Afghanistan in 2013 and 2015, as well as organising an expert round table on the trends and development in this field.

 

ICPE’s cooperation with Interact4C and other partners will expand to delivering highly specialised training for ICPE Member States with a primary focus on African countries, where a well-though-out system of civil status registration is one of the priority development areas, relating to a number of important issues, for instance improvement of health services, particularly for new-borns and small children, or providing higher quality of and equal access to education.
