Understanding and Screening for Statelessness in the U.S.

About This Recording

Statelessness, the situation where a person is not recognized by any State as a citizen, is an often overlooked or misunderstood issue that has devastating impacts on millions of people around the world. The United States is home to an estimated 218,000 people who are stateless or potentially at risk of statelessness in all 50 states, according to the Center for Migration Studies 2020 report, Statelessness in the United States: A Study to Estimate and Profile the US Stateless Population.

Join CLINIC and United Stateless, an organization led by stateless people dedicated to providing support and pioneering solutions for the stateless in the United States, for a presentation on the causes of statelessness, the obstacles faced by stateless people, the known data on statelessness in the United States, and how immigrant defenders can screen for statelessness.

Thanks to Karina Ambartsoumian-Clough and Jessica George from United Stateless for co-presenting on this webinar.
