Research Project Results:

A project on "Researching the Nexus between Statelessness and Human Trafficking: The Example of Thailand" has concluded that "Statelessness increases risk factors that influence the likelihood to fall victim to trafficking, such as lack of education and the ability to deal with a sudden crisis. A combination of risk factors may push stateless people to decide to migrate and take risks to be able to do so."
