Ad Hoc Committee on Statelessness and Related Problems, Israel: Proposals on "Means for Elimination of the Problem of Statelessness"
The Ad Hoc Committee on Statelessness and Related Problems,
Having in mind that it was charged by the Economic and Social Council to "consider means of elimination of the problem of statelessness, including the desirability of requesting the International Law Commission to prepare a study and make recommendations on the subject,"
Having studied the memoranda on this subject prepared by the Secretary-General (E/1112, Add.1 and 2, E/AC.32/3 and 4),
Considering that further studies by the Secretary-General of national legislation relevant to statelessness is called for by the resolution of the Economic and Social Council 116 (VI) D,
Noting that under the resolution 242 (IX) C an early drafting of a convention on the nationality of married women which would inter alia prevent a woman from becoming stateless is envisaged,
Recommends to the Economic and Social Council:
That it is desirable to conclude a comprehensive convention for the purpose of elimination of statelessness;
That the Secretary-General be requested to complete at early date a study of national legislation relevant to statelessness and to prepare a draft international instrument on the elimination of statelessness;
That this draft convention be reviewed either by a second session of this Ad Hoc Committee or by a new Ad Hoc Committee following the completion of the preliminary studies on the subject by the Secretary-General;
That certain pates of the envisaged Convention on the nationality of married women be incorporated into this Convention;
That the Economic and Social Council call on Member States to amend their legislation in order to remove causes for statelessness and eliminate it altogether.
