Report Launch and Media Call: How Statelessness in the Dominican Republic Limits Children’s Access to Education

April 7, 2014 —


The Human Rights Institute Fact-Finding Project at Georgetown University Law Center presents a new report on the immediate and devastating impact that statelessness has on the lives of children in the Dominican Republic, including recommendations to the United States and Dominican governments for how to improve the situation. These findings come in the wake of recent developments in Dominican law that could render many Dominicans of Haitian descent stateless.
