About us

Hi there, we are Statefree.

We are a non-profit organisation that aims to create visibility and community around the topic of statelessness.
#1 Main focus of our work is this platform: community.statefree.world.  On this platform stateless people can connect to each other and to their allies.  Goal is to create a Community for people to share stories, ask questions and discuss around the topic of statelessness.

#2 Furthermore we are currently meeting stateless people across Europe to portray them for the exhibition project Illuminating Statelessness.

#3 Supported by JoinPolitics we are fighting for equal rights for stateless people in Germany.

Mission

Our mission is to empower stateless people through community,  visibility and belonging. 

Christiana’s Story

How it all began

What  has now grown into a project which is led by a great group of people and supported by several civil society organizations, once started with a small idea of mine. 

My name is Christiana and I am a stateless person living in Germany. Despite the fact that I’ve been affected by statelessness since birth I had never really grasp and fully understand the issue of statelessness. 

A while ago, I started my mission to find the single-source of truth for statelessness. I failed. While I wasn’t able to find the single-source of truth I did discover a huge void of information and lack of communication, especially between stateless people and organizations which are advocating for the rights of stateless people.

So, I decided to create Statefree. A platform which allows us to build community, share stories and maybe at some point uncover the truth I was initially looking for.
