Statelessness in Switzerland

Published: November 2018

As part of UNHCR's #iBelong campaign, the UNHCR Office for Switzerland and Liechtenstein published this study mapping statelessness in Switzerland. The mapping study finds that Switzerland could be doing more to achieve the goals set out by the international community to achieve by 2024. 

The study provides two key recommendations around improving identification and recognition of stateless people in Switzerland and facilitating the reduction of cases of statelessness.
