How can identity assert a claim to citizenship? In search of a safeguard against statelessness

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

There are currently 10 million stateless persons in the world, many of which have been rendered stateless due to the state with which they feel a bond of attachment refusing to acknowledge their claim to citizenship. The “genuine link” required for having access to citizenship is currently determined by certain principles. This paper aims to determine how identity can help an individual assert a claim to citizenship and whether this can provide individuals with a safeguard against statelessness.
