Open Society Justice Initiative Joins Statement of Concern on Assam Registration Crisis
The Open Society Justice Initiative has joined over 100 civil society organizations from around the world in a statement condemning a citizenship registration review in the Indian state of Assam that excluded more than 1.9 million people from the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
The joint statement warns that those excluded are "undeniably at extreme risk of imminent statelessness, as they have effectively been stripped of their citizenship".
It also calls for the issue to be addressed by states attending the forthcoming High-Level Segment on Statelessness in Geneva, being convened by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to mark the mid-point in its 10-year global campaign to end statelessness.
