Kuwait: Submission to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, 91st Session, 29 August – 23 September 2022

This submission reflects Amnesty International’s concerns about violations of the rights to nationality, education and healthcare affecting children born into the local stateless population in Kuwait, known as the Bidun. It is based on review of Kuwait’s laws, the information it submitted to the Committee for this review and on interviews Amnesty International conducted with Bidun and recognized Kuwaiti nationals in June 2022. The principal matters of concern uncovered by the research are that Bidun children, especially those from families with minimal documentation, are deprived of the right to a nationality and face significant difficulties in fulfilling their rights to education and healthcare.
