Amnesty International demands end to educational discrimination in Kuwait

Amnesty International has announced in a statement that the government of Kuwait is discriminating against stateless children by denying them free education while they should be equal with naturalized citizens.

According to Al-Khalij Al-Jadeed News outlet, the international organization has issued a report ahead of the start of the school year in Kuwait.

The report points out that the government of Kuwait forces stateless children to pay for private education or to be deprived of education whatsoever.

Amnesty International emphasizes that Kuwait is a party to international treaties that recognize the right of all children living in the country to free and equal education, but Kuwaiti authorities refuse to honor this right.

It should be noted that nearly 100,000 people in Kuwait are stateless, having no recognized citizenship.
