No Legal Bond, No Family Life

With increased efforts to address the problem of statelessness globally, there is still a fundamental deficiency in information regarding the substantial violations of right caused by statelessness and its consequences. What this article wishes to do is to shed light on one consequence of statelessness that is yet to be part of either national or international discourse or addressed in research or reports on the issue. This overlooked problem is the negative and alarming effects of statelessness on the enjoyment of family unity and ultimately on the preservation of family structure. This article wishes to discuss the impact of statelessness on family unity by analysing three significant violations of rights that occur due to this status, focusing on the right to marriage, family unification and the right to own property - and how they often cause rifts in starting developing or keeping family unity.
