Stateless populations, currently thought to represent over 12 million people and despite international conventions and rule of law, continue to be one of the most vulnerable populations internationally. This is inherently in part because they are one of the most underserved when it comes to such democratic principles, despite international conventions (inclusive of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), 1951 and 1961 Conventions on Statelessness) and laws held by various democratic governments in which Stateless communities reside.
Given the purpose of the UDHR, 1954 and 1961 Conventions—along with the widely- accepted modern democratic principles and human rights that are at such conventions’ foundation—it is inordinately important to examine current 21st century, pragmatic realities of Stateless communities. The wide community of Roma, Haitians born in the Dominican Republic, and the Rohingya of Burma (Myanmar), each represent some of the most poignant examples of where democratic principles have failed such communities in the modern age, despite post- WWII vehemence regarding democratic principles and human rights.
