Statelessness in the United Arab Emirates

As the reputation of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as the economic and touristic hub of the Middle East continues to grow, so too does scrutiny over its record of human rights violations; freedom of expression continues to be severely restricted, women are still largely treated as deferential to men, and the killing of civilians in Yemen by Saudi-UAE led forces “in a widespread and systematic manner”continues.

An issue too-often neglected in the UAE, however, is statelessness. A stateless person is one “who is not considered as a national by any State under the operation of its law”, whether that be due to a loss of nationality, having unknown heritage, or racial and/or religious discrimination.
