Denial of nationality and citizenship has direct impact on gaining access to human rights for all people and prominently for stateless people. Such rights are the right to freedom of movement and residence, rights of the family, the right to health, and the right to education. Stateless people have increased in number all over the world and denial of nationality and citizenship become one primary factor in explaining politics of statelessness. This study seeks through a comparative case study between the Bedoon in Kuwait and the Bihari in Bangladesh to further understand the situation of stateless minorities. The research findings suggest that the lack of nationality and citizenship lead to human rights violations. Also, the research proposition suggests that the respective governments of Kuwait and Bangladesh continue the denial of citizenship because of several reasons. These reasons include domestic law of the state, national loyalty, personal interest, political pressure, Islamic culture and religion, and political corruption. Thus, granting the Bedoon and the Bihari citizenship within the nations, where they live, would ease their problems and lessen the problem of human rights violations.
