UNHCR's #IBELONG campaign to end 'Statelessness'

One out of three “stateless” people around the world are children, according to a special report by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) titled, “Ending Statelessness in 10 Years.” For example, because of a 1982 citizenship law, more than 800,000 Rohingya in Myanmar continue to be denied a nationality. We’ll talk with UNHCR’s Mark Manly about their #IBELONG campaign.
