Abstract

This article will attempt to conceptualise the hypothetical right to avoid origin deprivation (non-ancestry) as a basic human right. The existence of such a right, or rather the need for such a right to be more fully articulated and more consistently implemented by domestic legal systems, is underpinned by the considerable amount of research highlighting the wide range of harms that can attach to genetic kinlessness. The article will ask whether such a right might yet be found to carry sufficient weight to ‘embed’ itself as a usefully juridical concept within the sphere of domestic child law, especially where private law issues such as family formation, information release, kin contact or welfare paramountcy arise.
