Millions of people in stateless ‘limbo’, warns UNCHR

12 November 2018

People in every region of the world who do not have a nationality face a “day-to-day struggle” in accessing basic human rights such as education, healthcare and work, the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, said on Tuesday.

It’s thought that there are an estimated 12 million stateless people globally, and the UN agency is calling for countries to speed up their efforts to eradicate the problem by 2024, as spokesperson Andrej Mahecic tells UN News’s Daniel Johnson.
