The course provides participants with new knowledge, tools and skills to address statelessness and enforce the right to nationality. The curriculum is taught by lecturers from a variety of backgrounds, both professionally and geographically, all of whom are internationally recognized experts with many years of experience working on statelessness. Participants from all over the world engage actively in the different sessions, with several opportunities throughout the week to work in smaller teams and focus specifically on their own area of interest, e.g. through assignments designed to develop strategic ideas on research, advocacy or litigation. As such, the participants will benefit from the knowledge and professional experience of both the lecturers and their fellow participants.
