Consider for a moment, your citizenship. For most people our nationality, and therefore our citizenship, is something we were born with, something we inherited and are in no danger of ever losing. Yet, around the world today, there is an estimated 10 million stateless people.
That’s 10 million people without any access to public services or legal rights: no employment, medical treatment, education or even marriage. Today, our modern state system is failing these people, who through preventable circumstances have fallen between the cracks of society into an ambiguous and marginalised existence.
