New Podcast: Passport Privilege and the Right to National Identity
It can be easy to underestimate just how powerful our passport is. Your passport is your proof of citizenship. This means gaining access to security, employment, health and education, which goes beyond the right to travel for business or pleasure. However, the right to such freedoms comes at a price and the cost of such freedom depends on national laws and the strength of diplomatic relations and security between countries. When your passport is tied to your nationality and bloodline, such right becomes watered down and the term ‘privilege’ becomes much more relevant.
This podcast discusses the concept of passport privilege and the rights defined by our passports and ties of national identity. This podcast is hosted by Talyn Rahman-Figueroa (CEO, Grassroot Diplomat).
Grassroot Diplomat Talks is the monthly podcast produced by Grassroot Diplomat, discussing the practices of diplomacy and international relations in today's modern world. Further information can be found on: www.grassrootdiplomat.org
