The two-day non-residential course aims to examine the causes, consequences and remedies for statelessness around the globe and is presented by leading experts on the issue, including Professor Guy S. Goodwin-Gill, Professor of International Refugee Law at All Souls College, Oxford; Mark Manly, Senior Legal Coordinator (Statelessness) at UNHCR; and Dr Laura van Waas, Senior Researcher and Manager of the Statelessness Programme, Tilburg Law School, the Netherlands.
