Event location:



November 10, 2020, 12:30-14:00 CET

The event is English language only.

The Livestream will be available on our YouTube channel and on our Facebook site.

It is difficult to estimate how many people are stateless in the world because the data basis is incomplete. In many European countries, too, there is no special procedure for determining the extent of statelessness..

Another reason is that the issue itself is far too rarely an issue.

Our Atlas of the Stateless, which we are presenting to an international audience for the first time today, aims to make the issue more visible on the one hand, but also to point out possible solutions for the respective situations and problems.

We are very happy that we could win some of the authors of the Atlas of the Stateless for the international launch.
