Bulletin 7                                            August | 2016

On August 29, the National Human Rights Institute (INDH, for its acronym in Spanish), the Diego Portales University Human Rights Center, the Alberto Hurtado University Migrants Clinic, and the Jesuit Migrant Service submitted information to the Chilean Aliens and Migration Department and the Director of the Chilean National Civil Registry containing the results of a collaborative and inter-institutional work realized by the four institutions over the first half of the year in Antofagasta, Chile and Calama, Chile.

As a result, the State agreed to rectify as soon as possible the registration of the people identified in these cities who had been denied Chilean nationality at the time of their birth, and were therefore registered as children of foreigners in transit instead of being registered as Chilean nationals.

In addition, the creation of  a task force to implement a project with the support of UNHCR was agreed upon, to analyze the gaps in the current nationality confirmation procedure, and try to address the situation of the largest possible number of children of foreigners in transit who still reside in Chile and are at risk of statelessness.

During Red ANA's visit to Mexico, the network held a meeting on August 22 with the Fifth Visitor of the National Human Rights Commission, Dr. Egdar Corzo Sosa, to share projects and goals regarding the eradication of statelessness in Mexico.

On Agust 8 in Paris, Red ANA gave an interview to Jacques Nesi, representative of the PAFHA (Platform of Franco-Haitian Associations) to talk about the network's work and its projects in Haiti. This interview will be aired in September by Radio Fréquence Paris Plurielle (France) and Radio Sud Internationale (Haiti).

From August 1 to August 5, the Red ANA participated to the Statelessness Summer Course of the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion in Tilburg, Netherlands. The course approached different topics related to statelessness, drawing participants and speakers from all regions of the world.

On September 23rd Red ANA will be hosting with other organizations an event in Washington to screen the documentary "Our lives in transit" directed by MUDHA and Minority Rights International, which addresses statelessness in the Dominican Republic. Don't miss it! Click here to RSVP.
The UNHCR published a new Good Practices paper concerning statelessness determination procedures. This essay is based on the recommendations contained in Action 6 of the Global Action Plan to End Statelessness. Click here to view the paper.
On August 29 a podcast episode on a young woman born in Texas that cannot prove her existence was aired. Listen to it at Radiolab!
