Refugees International

Regions: International

Refugees International advocates for assistance and protection for displaced people and promotes solutions to displacement crises. The organization conducts approximately twelve field missions annually to identify displaced peoples’ needs for basic service such as food, water, health case, housing, access to education and protection from harm. Since 2004, Refugees International has visited sites around the globe to assess the situation of people who are stateless or at risk of statelessness. In Africa, RI has visited South Sudan to identify the risk of widespread nationality loss. Going forward, RI’s Statelessness Program aims to expand understanding of the problem of statelessness, increase recognition of the right to nationality, and promote solutions to prevent and reduce statelessness. RI believes bold efforts to end statelessness, domestically and internationally are long overdue and RI will work with governments and civil society to offer real solutions.
