Stateless Kids - Policy & Political Will
Dr Hartini Zainudin, Founder, Yayasan Chow Kit | Marianne Clark-Hattingh, Representative, UNICEF Malaysia
The UN High Commission for Refugees report “I am Here, I Belong” surveys seven countries, including Thailand and Malaysia. The report asserts that “no child needs to be stateless. Whether a child has been left stateless because of discriminatory nationality laws or other reasons, childhood statelessness is entirely preventable.” The question we ask today is why haven’t we been able to solve a problem that experts say is “entirely preventable”.
