Des conflits sur la frontière haïtiano-dominicaine

Depuis janvier 2015, plus de 2000 Haïtiens en République dominicaine sont rapatriés en Haïti. Cependant, pour plusieurs de ces gens, leurs familles et leurs vies restent en République dominicaine.

Migrants and Dominicans of Haitian Descent at Risk of Deportation

In September 2013, the Dominican Republic Constitutional Court issued a ruling that redefined its conditions for citizenship, putting Haitian migrants and Dominicans of Haitian descent at risk of deportation and statelessness. A research team at Johns Hopkins University recently released a report about the potential effects of the Dominican government’s actions and its problematic implementation. It also includes policy recommendations to address immigration and citizenship issues amidst the tense historical relations between Haiti and the Dominican Republic and the “unfavorable” political climate on the ground.

Since then, a moratorium has delayed deportations, but its impending expiration in the next few days would render hundreds of thousands of individuals stateless. Click HERE for the full article.

And though […]
