It’s my Right

Gender-based violence against LGBTIQ + boys, men and people is an extremely widespread phenomenon, along the entire migration path. It is important to talk about it because it can occur in any environment and cultural context, both in times of peace, but above all in contexts of war and conflict; for some refugees it can be a cause of escape, and a source of further vulnerability in transit or destination countries.

A stateless person is someone who is not a citizen of any country. Some stateless individuals are also refugees, but not all refugees are stateless, and many stateless individuals have never crossed a border.

Being stateless isn’t an individual choice or the result of an individual action. One becomes stateless as a result of one (or more) of the following reasons:

  • If he/she is the child of a stateless person or is unable to inherit the parents’ citizenship;
  • If one belongs to a social group to whom citizenship is denied due to discrimination;
  • If one is a refugee due to war or military occupation;
  • For bureaucratic reasons, if one’ nation has broken up and has given life to new national entities (e. g. The former USSR or Yugoslavia;)
  • Due to incongruities and omissions in different nations laws on the matter of citizenship.

In Italy there are two procedures to obtain certification that one is Stateless.

The administrative procedure entails sending a registered letter to the Ministry of the Interior asking to be recognized as a Stateless person. The following documents must be attached:

  • Birth certificate
  • Proof of residency and uthenticated copy of residence permit
  • Any documentation that will attest to your being stateless (e. g. Certificate issued by the Consulate of the country of origin, or by the last country where you resided showing that you are not one of their citizens.)

If your documentation is in a foreign language, it must be translated and certified!

The authorities will recognize Statelessness only if you have filed all documents legally required.

Length of procedure: Two years average.

If the administrative request is rejected, you can petition the courts (judiciary procedure).

The judiciary procedure is possible only with the assistance of counsel. The petitioner who lacks the funds to file request, can ask for governmental assistance.

The petition must be drawn up by an attorney.

The petition must be deposited at the “Chamber competent in the matter of immigration, international protection and free circulation of EU citizens” of the District Court near the residence of the petitioner for stateless status.

According to present legislature a residence permit will be issued to a petitioner for Stateless status only if he/she is already in possession of one. This said, some Police authorities, in conformity with the spirit of the 1954 Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons and on the indications of the UNHCR Manual on the Protection of Stateless Persons, will issue a residence permit if the person is able to show that the petition is pending.

In Italy those whose Statelessness has been recognized have a right to education, medical care, a job and social security. Furthermore they have a right to:

  • A residence permit for stateless status valid for 5 years;
  • Travel documents.
