PhD Research on Statelessness Raises Interest

Although it is just mid-way, the work of ACELG PhD candidate Katja Swider on the precarious legal position of stateless persons has already raised considerable interest with NGO's, policy makers and legal practitioners in the Netherlands and abroad.

Katja's NWO-funded research focuses on statelessness in Europe, and in particular the potential role of the European Union in addressing this issue. Her recent appointment as an Advisory Committee member of the European Network on Statelessness, brought her to Armenia, Russia and Slovenia for advisory work. Upon Katja's initiative, a number of statelessness-related events will be brought to the Law Faculty of the University of Amsterdam in March 2015, such as a photo exhibition on stateless persons in the Netherlands by Greg Constantine, a post-academic course on statelessness in the Dutch legal system, and a symposium on policy developments towards stateless persons in the Netherlands.
