The 1954 UN Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons defines statelessness as the situation where a person “is not considered as a national by any State under the operation of its law”. Excluded from the administrative framework of the state, statelessness has very real consequences affecting the lives of the estimated 10 to 15 million stateless persons worldwide, according to varying estimates from the UN and international civil society. There is often no birth registration, marriage certificate, passport and personal ID as proofs of the person’s existence. This can make it difficult, sometimes impossible, for a stateless person to access education, healthcare and financial services. Over half of the global statelessness population are believed to be in the Asia-Pacific. This is a serious challenge, given the region’s prominence in the global supply chain and the link that exists between human trafficking and statelessness. Stateless persons often take jobs in the informal economy and work outside of labour protections. This webinar is a legal and practical discussion on the link between statelessness and labour exploitation. It is a timely examination of the legal concept of “citizenship”, as well as a discussion on the advocacy avenues available, both nationally and at the UN, to bring more awareness on the human rights situation of the world’s stateless population.
