Southern African Nationality Network (SANN)

Regions: Southern Africa

The Southern African Nationality Network (SANN) is a collective of civil society organisations, individuals and networks working towards universal access to the right to a nationality and prevention of statelessness in Southern Africa.

Our motto “Freedom in Belonging” underscores our belief that without belonging concretised by formal nationality, African individuals and communities can never be free. Not only does nationality ensure access to human dignity and basic human rights for the individual, it fosters the belonging which is necessary for the creation of a prosperous and peaceful society.
