The main objective of the round table, which was divided into three panels and was moderated by Ms. Alenka Prvinšek Persoglio, Vice President of Interact4C, was to confront the different views of different actors operating in the domain of civil status and identity documents from the public, as well as the private sector.

ICPE, as an intergovernmental organization with forty years of experience, is pleased to host a round table on the important topic of civil status, whose importance was also reaffirmed on this year’s 3rd Africa Day organized in May, and to thus facilitate the transfer of knowledge to its 18 member states and beyond.
