Statelessness

May 02, 2018, 09:16 AM

You’re not legally a citizen of the country you were born in or any for that matter. That’s Statelessness and it affects the lives and chances of over 10 million people globally. The Rohingya community make up 3.5 million of this unseen problem. We’ll be talking to Melanie Khanna, Chief of the Statelessness Section at UNHCR, Amal de Chickera Co-founder and Co-director of the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion and Muhammed Noor, Co-founder and Managing Director of the Rohingya Project. They’ll be helping us to better understand statelessness and efforts to analyse, raise awareness and find ways to create identity through new technologies.
