520 8  "Interest in statelessness has been steadily increasing 
       since the late 1990s within academia, among governments, 
       at the UN and among civil society organisations. Research 
       projects, mapping studies and doctrinal discussions have 
       helped to clarify the challenges faced and our 
       understanding of what is at stake. This has led to a fresh
       sense of purpose in addressing the issue and there is now 
       a growing international movement engaged in finding 
       solutions, spurred on by the UNHCR-led #IBelong Campaign 
       to End Statelessness by 2024. Making meaningful progress 
       towards this goal demands a new and more ambitious 
       approach, one that moves beyond stocktaking to inspire 
       solutions. As Volker Türk outlines in his introduction to 
       this ground-breaking publication: "The global debates have
       moved beyond the need to explain the problem and its 
       causes and consequences. The time has come to accelerate 
       the momentum to implement durable solutions effectively." 
       The essays which have been collected in this edited volume
       all approach statelessness from a solutions perspective, 
       looking at what is being done, and what more can be done, 
       to address the issue. The first part of the book has a 
       thematic focus, exploring perspectives, tools and 
       techniques for solving statelessness which are relevant 
       across different countries and regions. Chapters in the 
       second part each have a regional focus, exploring region-
       specific challenges, developments and innovations set 
       against the backdrop of the broader context of a global 
       campaign to solve statelessness. With contributions from 
       both scholars and practitioners, the book is likely to be 
       of interest to anyone engaged in studying or implementing 
       solutions for statelessness, including researchers, 
       government policy-makers, staff of international or 
       regional inter-governmental bodies and UN agencies, grass-
       roots and international civil society organisations, legal
       practitioners and advanced-level students."--Page 4 of
