Continued progress on ending statelessness
TAGS

North and Central Asian countries are continuing to move quickly in improving issues of statelessness within their borders. Notably, Uzbekistan has joined neighboring countries to address the crisis and grant citizenship to 50,000 stateless peoples. As noted by UNHCR, "A provision in the Citizenship Law, signed by the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev on Friday, will come into effect on 1 April, conferring citizenship to registered stateless people who were granted permanent residence in Uzbekistan before 1 January 1995." Ultimately, the new law is a welcome addition and will serve as inspiration in the ongoing fight against statelessness worldwide.
