Thematic Focus: Statelessness

A new statelessness determination procedure came into effect in the United Kingdom in early April 2013.  UNHCR noted that this development provides "a positive example to other countries that are parties to the 1954 Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons but which have not taken steps to implement the Convention...."   For more information about the procedure, read the briefing note prepared by Asylum Aid, as well as various related blog posts here, here, and here.
