The possibility to exercise ones human rights is strongly connected to citizenship. Stateless people do not have access to the same rights as citizens of a country, and the risk of being subjected to different forms of violence is significantly higher for people who are denied a nationality. In 2014, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) launched a campaign to end statelessness by the end of 2024. While Sweden, as a state, has a responsibility to contribute to this ambitious goal, civil society, including faith based organizations, also has an important role to play in order to address the issue of statelessness and challenges related to that status. Churches all over the world have been encouraged to engage in the work against statelessness and to engage in finding solutions to effectively address statelessness.
