We are the first digital community for stateless people and their allies


Millions of people on earth don’t have a nationality. They don’t belong to any country and are not recognized as a citizen by any state. Those individuals are referred to as stateless people.


A community for stateless people and their allies

Statelessness is a global issue. Still, the topic remains invisible and intransparent. Not only to the public eye, but also to those who are affected by it.

Statefree.world provides a space in which statelessness can finally become visible. In this space those affected by statelessness and those working on statelessness can finally build community. A community in which we share stories, discuss current developments and start a global conversation to co-create the truth about what it means to be stateless in today’s world.

About Us

From a stateless person for stateless people

Hi, my name is Christiana. I am one out of many stateless people.

A while ago I decided to build community.statefree.world. A website which allows stateless people to connect to each other and to those who are fighting to end statelessness.

The goal is to build community and provide a space for stories, experiences and fruitful exchange around the topic of statelessness.


A community for everyone

We care to provide a space in which all experiences and perspectives are heard and valued. While people affected by statelessness are at the core of the community, we invite everyone who considers themselves an ally to join the conversation.
