PROTECTING FUTURES: Addressing lack of access to education for children without legal identity

  • Time: 7 a.m. EDT

The symposium will bring together persons with lived experience of statelessness, child rights advocates and civil society organizations, policy experts, UN agencies and members from the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child to delve into key aspects of the child’s right to identity and education, with discussions from the field focused on challenges, good practices and solutions for the future.

Importantly, this event offers the opportunity for stateless children to be heard with a dedicated session allowing children and youths to directly engage policy makers to better understand what they are doing to advance children nationality rights and access to education.
