Nationality and Statelessness

Nationality and Statelessness

There are an estimated 10 million people in the world who are not recognized as a national of any country, i.e. stateless. Every year, tens of thousands of children are born stateless. Statelessness is not just about identity but also about protection and access to education, health, employment and other rights such as political participation. Parliamentarians can help end statelessness by adopting and ensuring implementation of legislation that is consistent with international law as well as promoting State accession to the two UN statelessness conventions. This Handbook produced by IPU and UNHCR, will help parliamentarians and others to address the challenge of statelessness.
