Imagine growing up without a nationality? With the large numbers of refugees in the world, more people than ever find themselves stateless. After our joint committee hearing on the issue last week, I sat down with my colleague Claude Moraes, as well as Chris Nash, Director of the European Network on Statelessness and Melanie Khanna, UNHCR Head of Section for Statelessness, to discuss this important issue.
Statelessness will take centre stage in the European Parliament on Thursday (29 June), with two committees turning their attention to one of Europe’s most hidden and marginalised populations, write MEPs Claude Moraes and Cecilia Wikström.
Claude Moraes is chair of the European Parliament’s Justice and Home Affairs Committee (LIBE) and Cecilia Wikström is chair of the Petitions Committee (PETI).
