Focus: Americas

UNHCR and Open Society's Justice Initative released a report today entitled "Citizens of Nowhere: Solutions for the Stateless in the U.S."  The report makes "recommendations to aid policy makers and legislators in implementing administrative and legislative changes to improve the lives of stateless individuals who already reside in this country...so that they are able to participate as full members of society."
