People who are living outside of their country of birth can be especially vulnerable to human rights abuses and may experience poor working conditions or even abuse. To combat this, it’s important to recognize universal human rights. Rights include the right to earn a living, freedom of movement, education, and justice - to name a few.

RIGHTS OF CHILDREN NO MATTER WHERE THEY ARE

Children should register immediately after birth and have the right to obtain a nationality. A child without a DOB is extremely vulnerable to all kinds of abuse, particularly in the juvenile justice system. Protection of the rights of children without discrimination of any kind, irrespective of your parent’s race, color, sex, language, religion, political or another opinion, national, ethnic or social origin. Rights to survival, development, and access to quality services for all children. Right to an identity, including nationality, name, and family relations as recognized by law without interference. Right of children with disabilities - all universal civil rights and freedoms must be respected, protected, and promoted for all. Right of the child to have his or her best interests taken as a primary consideration. The opportunity to be heard in any judicial and administrative proceedings. The right of stateless children to be included in the decision-making processes within their residential territory.
