Statelessness Program

The Statelessness Program is an initiative dedicated to research, training and outreach on statelessness and related issues.

Statelessness Program

Statelessness is a global phenomenon that currently affects as many as 12 million people worldwide. New cases continue to arise every day as states struggle with the challenge of ensuring that everyone enjoys a nationality. For those who find themselves stateless, the lack of a nationality commonly obstructs access to a wide range of other rights, to detrimental effect. Moreover, the harsh impact that statelessness has on the lives of individuals and the fabric of communities may contribute to social tension, forced displacement and even conflict.

The goal of the Statelessness Program is to fulfill the need for a sustainable center of expertise, which is dedicated to research, training and outreach in this fascinating field. With this complementary three-pillar approach, the Statelessness

Program aims

  • To engage in and provide support for research on statelessness;
  • To promote academic education and professional training on statelessness;
  • To engage in public debate and inform policy development by international, governmental, advocacy and service organizations.
