Promoting citizenship and preventing statelessness in South Africa: A practitioner’s guide

Published: 1/Jan/2014
Source: Lawyers for Human Rights

Lawyers for Human Rights has been working on issues of statelessness since 2010. We established a Statelessness Project in 2011 and have been assisting stateless persons since this time. We continue to be concerned by the discrimination and absence of accessible protective measures for stateless persons. This Guide provides practical guidance in the representation and provision of assistance to stateless persons. We hope that this Guide will assist legal practitioners and social workers to take on cases of stateless persons and to assist them to acquire documents and citizenship.
