This webinar is part of a series of webinars on statelessness organised by the European Network on Statelessness and Fundación Cepaim.

They seek to shine a light on the key issues faced by stateless people in Europe today. Topics addressed will include forced migration, children’s nationality rights, stateless status determination and routes to regularisation, as well as discrimination, antigypsyism and other causes of statelessness among in situ populations.

Crucially, the webinar series is intended to facilitate a shared online space where stateless people, activists, community representatives, NGOs, and decision-makers can contribute their ideas and start to together identify routes to necessary reform.

The webinar on 22nd September, is a regional webinar (in English) setting out the current state of affairs across Europe, will showcase work being done by ENS members around Europe as well as highlighting what the EU and the Council of Europe are – or should be - doing to better protect stateless people in our complex and challenging times.

Following this, a series of online discussions (in Spanish) will assess and address statelessness in Spain, outlining specific opportunities for law and policy reform in the national context.

Make or break: The implications of COVID-19 for crisis financing

Make or break: The implications of COVID-19 for crisis financing

The report: Make or break – the implications of Covid-19 for crisis financing

NRC commissioned this study to reflect on what the Covid-19 pandemic response tells us about the fitness of the international crisis financing system. Crises provide moments of opportunity for policymakers. Ideas that were once politically inconceivable become mainstream, forgotten policy proposals are revisited and neglected issues are suddenly prioritised. 

 

The webinar:  15 September at 15:00 to 16:30 PM CEST. NRC and PHAP are organising a webinar to discuss the main findings and recommendations emerging from NRC's report. 

They will be joined by Jan Egeland, NRC Secretary General; Mark Lowcock, Emergency Relief Coordinator; Susanne Mikhail, Head of Humanitarian Aid at Sida; Hibak Kalfan, Director of the NEAR Network; and, Ben Parker, Senior Editor at The New Humanitarian. The panel will be moderated by Angharad Laing (Executive Director, PHAP) and will engage in a discussion on the role and fitness of the existing humanitarian financing structure and on how the system should evolve to be able to respond to crises of this complexity.

Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities and Older Persons in the Humanitarian Response to GBV

Organized by the GBV AoR, UNHCR, Humanity & Inclusion and HelpAge international, this session will focus on the specific protection risks that persons with disabilities and older persons face in relation to emergencies, particularly focusing on the increased exposure to Gender-Based Violence during COVID-19. Through dialogue, this session aims to provide a contextual mapping of protection risks and barriers faced by persons with disabilities and older persons, particularly in relation to GBV.

Field-level practitioners, including Disabled Persons Organisations and Older Persons Organisation, and the IASC Reference Group on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities will share promising practices on the implementation of the IASC Guidelines on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities, both within specialist GBV services and through targeted GBV risk mitigation across sectors. Follow-up actions will be determined jointly to bolster inclusion during emergencies.
