Abstract

While focusing on the ECtHR’s case-law on international surrogacy arrangements and namely on the child primary right’s to obtain respect for his private life, the article intends to show how inter-national human rights instruments can affect domestic law and its system of private international law. It argues basically that the Strasbourg Court approach, under Article 8 ECHR, is to be con-ceived as a judicial policy of child first implying a primacy of child’s rights as the ultimate point de repère given that he or she is the most vulnerable. Respect for the right to private life requires that persons should be able to establish details of their identity as individual human beings, which in-cludes filiation and the child’s right to have an identity, as well as a name. Overall, the emphasis lies on the child’s primary need to have his/her status filii recognized with respect to the biological fa-ther. Ultimately, the article advocates that private international law is to be shaped by means of in-terpretation to comply with international human rights obligations.
