1-Statelessness in the Western Hemisphere: An Ethnographic Analysis of Testimonies
In 2013, the Dominican Republic’s Constitutional Tribunal ruling 168/13 retroactively revoked the citizenship of over 200,000 Dominican nationals of Haitian descent, thus creating the fifth largest stateless population in the world at the time, and the largest in the Western Hemisphere to date. The ruling simply made legal the longstanding, racialized and clandestine practice of converting Haitian descendant Dominican citizens into foreigners, a status relegated to Haitian migrants, the parent(s) of Dominicans of Haitian descent. The ruling, as well as the laws that precede it, demonstrate how anti-blackness and racialization are processes through which citizenship is measured and mobilized by states to reorder society and formalize hierarchies.
