38. The Committee urges the State party to ensure that all children within the territory of the State party living in Algeria, including children born out of wedlock, refugee and stateless children are registered at birth. The State party should also urgently issue clear instructions to all schools throughout the territory that all children, irrespective of their registration status should be enrolled into public schools and that no child should be deprived access to education.
40. The Committee recalls the responsibilities of the State party, in accordance with articles 2 and 7 of the Convention, to ensure that all children within the State party’s jurisdiction have the right to be registered and acquire a nationality, irrespective of the child’s or his or her parents’ or legal guardians’ sex, race, religion or ethnicity, social origin or status. The Committee therefore urges the State party:
(a) To ensure that children born to an Algerian mother married to a foreign national can automatically acquire their mother’s nationality as prescribed in the Nationality Code;
(d) To ratify the Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness of 1961.
