Statelessness and International Law Short Course
The issue of statelessness is rising steadily on the agenda of the United Nations, regional institutions, governments and civil society. There is also an increasing body of theoretical and empirical research looking at citizenship and lack thereof from various perspectives. It is within this context that the Refugee Studies Centre offers its third short course on statelessness and international law.
This two day, non-residential course will be presented by some of the leading experts on this issue. It will be participative and interactive, involving practical examples and case studies. The course will cover various thematic areas, including an overview of the problem of statelessness in today’s world; the politics and ethics of statelessness; the international legal framework governing statelessness; and UNHCR’s statelessness work. Case studies will be drawn from current statelessness situations in Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
