For the person to be able to build a future based on reality: her/his present and a pre-separation past

WHY IS THE RIGHT TO KNOW IMPORTANT?

  • To understand how and why the person has been separated from her/his biological family
  • To discover from which socio-cultural background she/he does come from
  • To verify the biological health
  • To maintain healthy relations with the alternative care providers and the biological family

  • Leads to the violation of other basic rights and entitlements
  • Denies personal integrity and legal status
  • Undermines access to all other rights (nationality, culture, personal data such as name and birthdate)
  • Generates irreversible identity crisis
  • Denies the biological affiliation and the gynecological medical question
  • Vulnerabelize the separated children
  • Leads to marginalization and social exclusion
  • Puts children at risk of human trafficking
