QCOSTARICA – On Thursday, President Luis Guillermo Solis and foreign Minister, Manuel Gonzalez, signed the regulation for the declaration of the Status of Stateless Person (Condición de Persona Apátrida in Spanish).

With the regulation, Costa Rica will recognize the so-called stateless persons, not recognized as national of any state to guarantee their human rights.

A stateless person is one who is not recognized as a national by any State. Worldwide there are around 10 million stateless people, the U.N. refugee agency (UNHCR) estimates. A stateless person usually is one whom a state denies its nationality for being the son of foreign parents or a person belonging to a country that disappears due to geopolitical changes.

“The Costa Rican government is committed to eradicating this unworthy form of living”, said Gonzalez, following the signing of the document at Casa Amarilla (Foreign Ministry) in downtown San Jose.

The Foreign Ministry also pointed out that Costa Rica has become one of the few nations that are party to the Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons, 1954 and of the Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness, adopted in New York on 30 August 1961.
