According to the UNHCR, there are 12 million people in the world who are not considered a national by any state under the operation of its law. This includes millions of refugees and victims of genocide.

Our seminar, a collaboration between STAND Canada and IRSA UBC, will explore the causes of statelessness as well as the practical and unpractical consequences for people who are currently stateless. We will also present the urgent humanitarian case of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar/Burma.

Following a short presentation by our members, we invite people to reflect on how our citizenship draws the boundaries of our identity and our possibilities. Please join us for a welcoming conversation on this subject. Light snacks will be provided.

*We acknowledge that this event and all other events at the UBC Global Lounge are taking place on unceded, traditional and ancestral territory of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people.*

STAND Canada is a national, youth-led advocacy organization working to make ending and preventing genocide a cornerstone of Canadian foreign and domestic policy. Learn more and apply to volunteer at standcanada.org.
