June 21, 2023

On 18 May 2023, Jipariza Jumagazieva, an LLM student from the Human Rights Program, presented a thought-provoking paper on secondary citizenship in wartime at the Association for the Study of Nationalities Convention organized by Columbia University's Harriman Institute. Jipariza's research paper highlighted the intricate dynamics of secondary citizenship in wartime, focusing on Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, and Russia. By examining the challenges and criminal accountability faced by individuals with dual citizenship, the research underscored the need for legal frameworks, international cooperation, and human rights protections to ensure equitable treatment and safeguard the rights of all individuals, irrespective of their citizenship status. This analysis calls for further research and policy development to address the complexities surrounding secondary citizenship in conflict zones, aiming to promote human rights and equal treatment for all. Jipariza expresses deep gratitude to the supervisor of her paper, Professor Dimitry Kochenov, for his invaluable support and guidance throughout her research. Jipariza is also thankful to the chair of the Human Rights Program, Professor Inga Winkler, and the Legal Studies Department for providing her with a travel grant; this support allowed her to present her findings and engage in fruitful discussions with fellow scholars and experts in the field. Furthermore, Jipariza extends her appreciation to Judit Minczinger for her dedicated assistance in editing her paper.
