Mapping of Stateless Persons in Slovenia

The project aims at acquiring an overview of the number and socio-demographic profile of stateless persons in Slovenia and their legal situations, including practical challenges they face in their everyday life. Within the project we analyse the impact of current Slovene policy and practice on access to rights by those qualified to be stateless, and examine Slovenia’s obligations under international law. The results of the mapping exercise would facilitate UNHCR and its stakeholders plan their intervention in matters pertaining to statelessness in Slovenia as well as help promote a rights-based approach on statelessness issues…
