Children without a Country

“In terms of statelessness, Roma are without a doubt the most over-represented ethnic group in Europe by numbers of stateless children. We already face enough problems from anti-Gypsyism in its many guises across the continent - being born without a nationality means our children are even further denied social, educational and healthcare services, as well as being stigmatised and pushed further towards the margins of society. It is time for governments to take responsibility and end this harmful situation for the next generation.”  - ERRC President Ðorđe Jovanović

Who knows, perhaps the new First Lady of the U.S.A. would be interested in addressing statelessness in Slovenia, the land of her birth Slovenian Youth Ambassadors .
