Nationality, Citizenship and Human Rights are all interconnected areas which play a vital role in the life of a human being. The denial of Nationality or the loss of Citizenship both will have impact on human being as there increases the chances of becoming Stateless and thereby falling into the gaps which prevail in the society that it becomes impossible to get out of it and live a life that is not just a mere animal existence. Statelessness is a situation where the person does not belong to any nation, he does not have a citizenship of any State and he loses his fundamental rights which are incidental to these main rights. Nationality is the sense of belongingness to a particular State who is in a way guardian of the fundamental rights of its citizen and the citizen gets a right to come to the court and assert those rights and demand for the relief when their rights get infringed by the other individual. Rights and duties are interconnected if one does not come to court with clean hands, he cannot assert the law to provide him the relief. The definition of Stateless person is provided in the Convention relating to status of Stateless person 1954 as a person who do not belong to any of the State. In this paper researcher will examine How far the Convention on the status of Refugee as well as the Convention on Stateless person been helpful in prevention of the violation of Human Rights.
