ENGAGING WITH THE MEDIA AS A TOOL FOR ADDRESSING STATELESSNESS

SNAP is partnering with the University of New South Wales on a project aimed at mapping media reporting trends with respect to statelessness in Asia.  By better understanding media reporting trends, the project aims to identify opportunities for engaging with the media on addressing statelessness. As result of this project we have developed a report analysing media reporting trends on statelessness in 11 countries in Asia (Bangladesh, China, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Thailand, India, Japan, Nepal, Taiwan, Pakistan, and Myanmar), a complementary toolkit for engaging with the media in these 11 countries and a video that shares information on the work of SNAP’s members. We aim to launch the media analysis, toolkit and video in August 2018. More information about the project can be accessed here.

A GENDER ANALYSIS OF THE RIGHT TO A NATIONALITY IN MYANMAR

SNAP in collaboration with UNHCR, UN Women, the Norwegian Refugee Council, Seagull: Human Rights, Peace and Development and Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion have facilitated desk and field research on gender and the right to a nationality in Myanmar. This project has provided new insights into the barriers that women and their children in Myanmar face in acquiring, confirming and retaining citizenship, as well as conferring citizenship to their children. The project was funded by UNHCR Myanmar and UN Women Myanmar and a report on the project’s findings is now available in English.  The report will also be available in Burmese in the coming months.
