Countries obligated by the 1954 Convention on the Status of Stateless Persons


Saturday, February 14, 2015 at 08:33

In another post, I presented the text of: 1954 UN Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons. Below is a quick list of countries that have acceded to that convention and are bound by its terms. Please refer to the UN Treaty page linked below for complete information, including footnotes and reservations (ie: a few countries did not agree to all the provisions).

I believe this list includes some countries that no longer exist and that there are currently 85 countries bound by the convention. El Salvador was the most recent one. The footnote next to China is important has basically the convention may apply to Hong Kong but not mainland China.

The 1954 Convention is the one that obligates the states to respect the rights of Stateless people and issue them ID and travel documents.
