Swedish Organization Against Statelessness

We are a newly started organization in Sweden that raises awareness on issues relating to statelessness. We mainly work with advocacy and lobbying rather than individual, direct support to persons affected by statelessness. Our goal is to amplify the voices of stateless persons and raising awareness in Sweden, in order to change policy and laws to end statelessness and ensure the protection of stateless persons’ rights.
