What is statelessness? What does it mean to be stateless? And why should we care? In this first episode of The Paperless People Podcast, we will be exploring these questions and more. We talk to human rights activists and experts working to try and address the global and worrying issue of statelessness.
This podcast series, produced by the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion, with the support of the Knowledge Platform for Security and the Rule of Law (Knowledge Management Fund), explores how the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals needs to be re-thought in order to effectively address statelessness challenges. Share your questions and reflections on the issues raised via @institute_si / firstname.lastname@example.org
