Here at the Haiti Support Group we are delighted to share news of Dr Hayes de Kalaf’s first book “Legal Identity, Race and Belonging in the Dominican Republic: From Citizen to Foreigner“.
The publication highlights the connection between the role of international actors in promulgating the universal provision of legal identity and links these with arbitrary measures to restrict access to citizenship paperwork from populations of (largely, but not exclusively) Haitian descent.
Her conference “(Re)Imagining Belonging in Latin America and Beyond: Access to Citizenship, Digital Identity and Rights” will take place at the Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) at the University of London on 23 and 24 June.
The core themes of this conference are discussed to greater detail in this article Digital identity, rights and citizenship in Latin America and the Caribbean: who are we including and who is being left behind?
Eve is a longstanding member of the Haiti Support Group and has an extensive academic and professional background working in Latin America and the Caribbean. Her book will be released as part of the Anthem Press Series in Citizenship and National Identities later this year.
