A stateless person is not necessarily a refugee. Statelessness goes far beyond migration, and effects millions of people around the world.
The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation and United Nations Commissioner for Refugees invite you to a public outreach event hosted at the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre, to raise awareness about the issues surrounding statelessness and to explore the available solutions to address this global challenge from legal, political, and social perspectives.
Kindly see the concept note for speakers and further information.
“Three Layers of Uncertainty – What’s Happening in Mozambique and Why Does It Matter?
Mozambique, a country with a long history of military and political instability, faces ongoing economic and political uncertainty. Economically it continues to be profoundly impacted by the negative consequences of the so-called “hidden loans”. Politically, the sudden death of Afonso Dhlakama, leader of Resistência Nacional de Moçambique (RENAMO), and the emergence of what is being called “Islamic radicalism” in the northern part of the country cast doubt upon Mozambique’s prospects to live under full peace and stability.
Fredson Guirramela L. Guilengue unpacks the situation further in the below paper.
