Globalization and Autonomy. Julie Sunday, McMaster University In general terms, self-determination is the right of a national group to be sovereign within a given territory. Although this definition appears to be straightforward, applying it consistently has proved extremely difficult. Are only nation-states allowed to be self-determining or are national minorities within states also entitled to self-determination?

Statelessness in Bangladesh, Dominican Republic, Kenya. From the slums of Kenya and refugee camps of Lebanon to the sugar plantations of the Dominican Republic and the far reaches of Bangladesh, men, women and children across the world have found themselves living without citizenship rights.

Statelessness in Bangladesh, Dominican Republic, Kenya

Rejected by their countries of birth and unwelcome everywhere else, they are called by international rights organizations “the stateless.” Their predicaments change depending on time and place. But many cannot access health care, go to school or join the formal economy; others cannot obtain the documents necessary for functioning in society, such as a birth certificate, a passport or a driver’s license. These people are not refugees; in fact, they often have deep roots in their home countries. But denied citizenship, they do not have a nationality. Although the reasons for their situation vary, the result is largely the same: a global population that is legally invisible, desperately vulnerable and growing restive.

The First Night in Exile-This painting comes from a celebrated series illustrating one of Hinduism’s great epics, the Ramayana.


It tells the story of the prince Rama, who is wrongly exiled from his father’s kingdom, accompanied only by his wife and brother. Exile means to be away from one's home (i.e. city, state or country), while either being explicitly refused permission to return and/or being threatened with imprisonment or death upon return. It can be a form of punishment and solitude.[1] It is common to distinguish between internal exile, i.e., forced resettlement within the country of residence, and external exile, deportation outside the country of residence.[2] Although most commonly used to describe an individual situation, the term is also used for groups (especially ethnic or national groups), or for an entire government.

Exile can also be a self-imposed departure from one's homeland.

His move made him one of a small number of former Americans who voluntarily made themselves stateless as a form of political protest. Soon after his renunciation, Jolley crossed back into the U.S. and began working in Florida. A U.S. federal court ruled that he was deportable, but the Immigration and Naturalization Service could not actually deport him to Canada because he had lost his Canadian landed immigrant status.

He died in Asheville, North Carolina at the age of 70. Early life and renunciation[edit] Jolley was born in Greensboro, North Carolina. Deportation case[edit] Aftermath[edit] By January 1974, Jolley still had not been deported and was living in Morgantown, West Virginia. Statelessness. What if you renounce US citizenship?

BRATISLAVA, Slovakia — The world seems to think Mike Gogulski is crazy. People on his blog have told him so. He suspects his own mother in the US thinks he’s nuts. The 39-year-old freelance translator, who has at various times called himself a radical libertarian or anarchist, was an American until 2008. Now he’s stateless.

“I like it this way,” Gogulski says while sipping a beer at the Café Laguna on a busy Bratislava street corner. Many have burned their passports as a form of political protest. UN Conventions on Statelessness. The 1954 Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons and the 1961 Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness are key legal instruments in the protection of stateless people around the world and in the prevention and reduction of statelessness.

UN Conventions on Statelessness

While they are complemented by regional treaty standards and international human rights law, the two statelessness conventions are the only global conventions of their kind. The conventions attracted relatively few ratifications or accessions for decades. So, in 2011, to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1961 Convention, UNHCR launched a major campaign to promote accession to the two statelessness treaties. The campaign quickly produced results. There have been 33 accessions since the campaign was launched.
