Joint Submission to the Human Rights Council at the 32nd Session of the Universal Periodic Review - Macedonia


This submission to the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in relation to statelessness in Macedonia was submitted by The Macedonian Young Lawyers Association (MYLA), Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion (ISI), European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC), European Network on Statelessness (ENS), and the Minority Rights Group International (MRG).

This submission focusses on various issues relating to the (risk of) statelessness, discrimination and human rights of those within the Roma community in Macedonia. In particular, it looks at the intergenerational impact of the dissolution of the former Yugoslavia and the (risk) of statelessness still faced by some Roma families as a result, barriers to birth registration, the lack of a statelessness determination procedure and naturalisation.
