Statelessness and the Quest for Citizenship in the Dominican Republic

Should a state have the right to revoke already-granted citizenship from those who are born within its borders, but whose parents and grandparents remain undocumented? Join us for the upcoming workshop, Statelessness and the Quest for Citizenship in the Dominican Republic, hosted by the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics and cosponsored by the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. This is the third workshop in our new discussion series, Conversations in Human Rights.

The workshop is on Thursday, November 14, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in West Duke 101, followed by a reception. The featured panelists are Rosario Espinal, sociologist at Temple University, and Nassef Perdomo, constitutional lawyer from the Dominican Republic. Deborah Jenson of CLACS and Romance Studies will serve as discussant, while Michaeline Crichlow of AAAS and Sociology will serve as moderator. This event is open to all faculty, graduate students, and postdocs. **RSVP by Tuesday, November 12**
