Retreat on Resolving Statelessness in the Asia Pacific Bangkok – 15 to 17 June 2015

Prof. Sanoj Rajan
Statelessness is a global phenomenon affecting at least 10 million people worldwide. The UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR’s most recent published statistics indicate that over 1.4 million persons of concern under its Statelessness Mandate are residing in the Asia Pacific region, representing more than 40 per cent of the total identified population. Without a nationality, stateless people are discriminated against and deprived of access to a wide range of basic human rights, such as access to identity documents, employment, education, health services etc. The Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network (APRRN) and the UNHCR Regional Office for Southeast Asia have organized a programme, Retreat on Resolving Statelessness in the Asia Pacific, to be held from 15 - 17 June 2015 at Bangkok, Thailand. To represent ITM University, Gurgaon, Prof. Sanoj Rajan, Head, School of Law, will attend this fully funded programme of APRRN and UNHCR, which will provide the University an opportunity for interaction with international experts.
