Magic, Mutilation, and Murder: A Case for Granting Asylum to Tanzanian Nationals with Albinism
"This paper argues that the continuing cruel, inhuman, degrading, and discriminatory treatment of Tanzanian nationals with albinism (hereinafter “Persons with Albinism” or “PWAs”) constitutes persecution under American asylum law and that these individuals who face or fear such treatment on account of their disability, albinism, should presumptively be entitled to eligibility for asylum in the United States (“U.S.”)." The paper provides a framework for fulfilling the necessary requirements in applying for asylum should PWAs choose to seek it.
