New Blog Features

I just wanted to point out a couple of changes in the sidebar of this blog. I'm now using Delicious to bookmark journal article abstracts and new book announcements. Delicious is great because it makes all sorts of tools freely available to its users, including one to automatically create lists of links based on bookmarked items - and you don't have to have any technical knowledge to do it. As I bookmark more article and book references, the lists will update accordingly. You can also subscribe to the associated RSS feeds to monitor updates in your newsreader.

Hope you find these useful!

Statelessness: Progress Report & Global Survey

Refugees International (RI) released an indepth report today, which notes that while progress that has been made in addressing statelessness for some groups, more still needs to be done to find solutions. The report begins with an introduction to the issues, then reviews the right to nationality, national and international responses, and lessons learned. The second part serves as a global survey of statelessness with a geographic breakdown of the extent of the problem.

The phenomenon of statelessness is receiving more attention these days. UNHCR recently posted a report of its own, and Forced Migration Review (FMR) is due to publish an issue on the matter sometime this month.
