Paperless People Podcast #5 Identity denied: citizenship stripping in the Dominican Republic
Oct 24, 2018 Season 1 Episode 5
Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion
Podcast exploring the challenges to legal identity and citizenship for Dominicans of Haitian descent in the Dominican Republic, linking this to SDG16.9
Show Notes

In this edition of the Paperless People Podcast we follow the stories of two people from the Dominican Republic, exploring how domestic law and policy is perpetuating their legal invisibility and discrimination against them. Through these stories and expert analysis, we explore how the UN Sustainable Development Goals may struggle to achieve what they set out to do if the approach to implementation and monitoring does not account for structural discrimination that is too often leaving certain people behind: in this case the Dominicans of Haitian descent.

This podcast series, produced by the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion, with the support of the Knowledge Platform for Security and the Rule of Law (Knowledge Management Fund), explores how the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals need to be re-thought in order to effectively address statelessness challenges.
