    Our Motherland; Our Country. Gender Discrimination and Statelessness in the Middle East and North Africaaaa11705720751a7ab34d8396  Photo: Hannah BoatfieldOn Friday, June 7, the Women's Refugee Commission, and the Statelessness Program at the University of Tilburg (Netherlands) launched a report, Our Motherland; Our Country. Gender Discrimination and Statelessness in the Middle East and North Africa.

    The report calls for an end to gender discrimination in nationality laws. Such gender discrimination arises when women cannot acquire, change, retain or pass on their nationality to their children and/or their spouses on an equal basis as men.

    Twenty-nine countries around the world, 11 of them in the Middle East and North Africa, still have discriminatory nationality laws that make it impossible for women to transfer their nationality to their children, or to their non-national spouses. These laws render people stateless—and severely threaten their access to healthcare, education, jobs and even marriage.

    In addition to the publication of a formal report, we have also used our finding to create two short films on statelessness, published our photos from the field in a photo essay, and posted a blog on Huffington Post. Check out the report, and accompanying multi-media materials below!

    Read the report, “Our Motherland, Our Country: Gender Discrimination and Statelessness in the Middle East and North Africa”.

    Read Executive Director Sarah Costa's Huffington Post article.
