Bulletin 12                          February - March | 2017


Last May, Red ANA, the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Colombia hosted the first specialized course on statelessness with focus in the Americas. The course brought together 34 participants and 9 facilitators from 12 countries in the Americas and Europe. In five days, the participants took classes, studied statelessness cases in the region, engaged in group activities, discussed ideas to face statelessness, and developed specific lines of action to implement in their countries. Simultaneously, a training course on statelessness for Colombian state agents that work on different institutions that address statelessness took place. The ANA Network appreciates the support of UNHCR and Open Society Justice Initiative to make these courses possible. Take a look at the different press releases on this event: UNHCR Colombia, Colombian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

On May 2, the Center for Legal and Social Studies (CELS) and the Argentinian Commission for Migrants and Refugees (CAREF) will present a Webinar about statelessness in Argentina that will address the recently adopted legislative changes regarding migration and the cases of statelessness in that country.   

The Draft Articles on the Protection of Stateless Persons and the Facilities for their Naturalisation issued by UNHCR are now available. This document serves as a guide for States and Civil Society to use in the process of drafting domestic legislation on statelessness and eventually enacting it. Find the document in English and Spanish at the Resources tab on our website.
