Motion text

That this House welcomes the launch of a new campaign for the International Observatory of Human Rights on statelessness and citizenship deprivation; believes that their call for the UNHCR to enact an International Day Against Statelessness is vital in raising awareness for the issue that affects approximately 10 million people globally; understands that those who find themselves stateless often experience a protection gap leading to violations of their rights; recognises that stateless persons often suffer from health issues, lack of education, restricted movement and social alienation; and encourages anyone who is concerned about the issue of statelessness to support the International Observatory of Human Rights in calling for an International Day Against Statelessness.
