Ms

Petrozziello,
This article discusses the ways babies born to migrant and refugee women are being excluded from birth registration and calls for rights defenders to recognize and resist these practices. It focuses on the Dominican Republic’s denial of birth certificates for people of Haitian descent, and an action-research project aiming to facilitate access to the Dominican civil registry for children of mixed-status couples (Haitian migrant mother and Dominican father).
