Request: Assistance with statelessness research
Do you know of people who could be stateless? If yes, we would be interested to hear from you!
We are a team working on an innovative research project being undertaken jointly by UNHCR and Asylum Aid on the issue of statelessness in the UK. The purpose of the project is to complete a detailed mapping of the number, situation and profile of stateless people in the UK and an analysis of relevant UK law, policy and practice relating to stateless
people. The aim is to produce detailed evidence which can be used to advocate for change in government policy, which can hopefully lead to positive outcomes for stateless people in the UK.
We are trying to identify individuals who might be willing to be interviewed for our research, as well as to potentially have their case files reviewed where possible. We are appealing for your help in facilitating this process.
http://www.asylumaid.org.uk/data/files/entry_point_questionnaire__final.doc for a short information sheet which explains the project in more detail including exactly what we mean by a stateless person and examples of individuals who could be included in this category, as well as information on how the research will be used and exactly what would be required of the interviewee. This also includes a short referral form (questionnaire) for you to fill in which simply asks for your contact details so we can get in touch with either you or your client/the interviewee directly, as well providing a little bit of information about the individual in question so we can better understand their circumstances.
Please either return the completed referral form (using the additional sheet where you have more than one case) to email@example.com ideally by Monday 10th January 2011 or access it online by following the link on the home page at www.asylumaid.org.uk
Many thanks and we look forward to hearing from you,
