Migration: Citizenship


The Dominican Republic’s Constitutional Court issued a ruling that expects to strip the nationality of tens of thousands of people. For eight decades, these people were registered as Dominicans under the Constitution and the laws in effect. The Constitutional Court‘s 0168-13 ruling violates several principles. The Dominican Republic should respect its own legislation, guarantee a State governed by the rule of law, and preserve the fundamental rights of the population without discrimination.
