our other work

The Institute is currently undertaking its first strategic planning process. Central to this is a broader mapping and consultation process to fully understand the gaps, as well as the needs and interests of its (potential) partners and beneficiaries. This will allow the Institute to establish, in addition to those activities already identified, how and where it can pursue activities to advance its mission. Guided by its mission and objectives, the Institute will review this input and develop a three-year strategic plan (2016-2018), in further consultation with key (potential) partners and donors. Check the website regularly to follow how our work develops.

Statelessness and development

Together with researchers at Chatham House and the UN University Institute on Globalisation, Culture and Mobility, we are collaborating on a paper and the convening of an expert meeting on statelessness and development, in the context of the negotiation and adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals. Further information on this project will be available later in 2016.

Academic Teaching and Student Supervision

The Institute will use its expertise to develop, deliver and advise on academic programmes on statelessness. In particular, we continue the successful and well-subscribed undergraduate course ‘Nationality, Statelessness and Human Rights’ at Tilburg University, as well as participating in guest lectures and seminars in other programmes and at other institutions. Our experts also supervise or advise on student research on statelessness, at undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level as appropriate.
