Gender Equality, Nationality Laws and Statelessness 2015

Nationality laws which do not grant women equality with men in conferring nationality to their children are a cause of statelessness and a concern for UNHCR under its mandate to prevent and reduce statelessness. Each year since 2012, UNHCR has issued an annual background note on gender equality in nationality laws relating to conferral of nationality to children. This Background Note provides the most up-to date information available to the UNHCR as of 6 April 2015.

I am here, I belong - The Urgent Need to Address Childhood Statelessness

Summary taken from the report: 
Stateless children are born into a world in which they will face a lifetime of discrimination; their status profoundly affects their ability to learn and grow, and to fulfil their ambitions and dreams for the future.
With a stateless child being born somewhere in the world at least every 10 minutes, this is a problem that is growing.
