Circulation of Personal Status – International symposium, January 19, 2024


An international symposium on the circulation of personal status be held on January 19, 2024 at the Italian Court of Cassation.

The symposium is organized by the Société de législation comparée (Section méthodologie comparée du droit civil), the Associazione Civilisti Italiani, the International Commission on Civil Status in collaboration with the Law Faculty of the Université Côte d’Azur.

The significance of this topic is paramount in light of the growing international mobility of individuals and families. For this reason, the conference will address key aspects of personal status, including civil status, personal identification, the union of persons, parenthood, and nationality.

The approach is decidedly comparative and internationalist, as evidenced by the diverse panel of speakers (and chairs):

  • Claudio Scognamiglio (Chairman, Associazione Civilisti Italiani),
  • Gustavo Cerqueira (Chairman, Section méthodologie comparée du droit civil de la SLC),
  • Nicolas Nord (Secretary General of the International Commission on Civil Status),
