Working together with stateless people
Nobody understands the impact of living without a nationality better than stateless people themselves. Yet the experiences of stateless people are rarely acknowledged by decision makers in the debates that affect their lives.
Ending statelessness is possible, but we cannot do it without the people affected by it
The absence of stateless people in the debates and decision-making processes is not due to a lack of willingness to speak out and be involved. We want stateless people to be empowered and have opportunities to deliver their own messages on what needs to change, both to decision makers and the wider public.
ENS works closely with people and communities affected by statelessness across our work, and our membership is increasingly growing to include community organisations and individuals affected by statelessness.
We take steps to make sure that we are accountable in the decisions we take and the work that we do, to the views and priorities of stateless people and communities in Europe.
I am not just a subject here, I am a part of this thing.
