In June 2023 the Cente for Child Law and Lawyers for Human Rights made joint submissions on the  National Identification Bill, 2022. The submissions are based on the two organisations’ extensive experience around access to legal identity and statelessness, as well as thier respective consultations with and assistance provided to marginalised individuals, families, and communities, including children, who face barriers in accessing birth registration, identity documentation, citizenship, and legal status in South Africa.
