Prevention of statelessness
Prevention of statelessness
CRP/K is actively implementing activities aiming prevention of statelessness of undocumented persons in Kosovo, in particular, among Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities. From 2007 up to date, over 16.000 persons of concern are supported in civil status registration and obtaining personal identity documents, thus avoiding the risk of statelessness. The activity is accompanied with a strong public information campaign and advocacy targeting both persons of concern and Kosovo authorities. The role of CRP/K in legislation reform related to this issue and capacity building of competent officials is significant.
