Thematic Focus: Statelessness

Did you notice...

The UNHCR logo in several factsheets from UNHCR West Africa reads "UNHCR: The UN Refugee and Statelessness Agency" (see this one as an example).  I don't recall seeing "statelessness" included before. Is an official change in the works?  Perhaps related to UNHCR's campaign to eradicate statelessness (which is due to be launched on 4 November 2014)?
