Hi everyone! I was super excited to find this community so thanks for having me.
My name is Sophie and I am currently studying at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, though am from New Zealand. I am currently working on my Master’s thesis on the topic of climate change and statelessness in Europe. Essentially, I want to look at how stateless people in Europe have been and will continue to be affected by climate change.
If anyone knows any organisations/people working in the civil society space with stateless people (particularly in Italy, as I think this will be my focus) I would be glad to hear about it!
Feel free to send me a message to chat as well 😊
@sophieauckram, I just saw your post now - your research sounds so interesting! I work at the European Network on Statelessness and we have a few members who have done bits of work on this topic that I can share here (although not Europe-focused), although it’s certainly under-researched/understood still. I hope this is helpful! :)
