A Comparative Study on the Benefits of Nationality
Edited by Brad K. Blitz and Maureen Lynch
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that there are more than 12 million stateless people in the world.

This fascinating study examines positive developments in eight countries and pinpoints the benefits of citizenship now enjoyed by formerly stateless persons.
