International Affairs Forum (Centre for International Relations, Washington DC) has recently published its Winter 2016 issue, titled 'A World on the Move: Migration and Statelessness'.

Hélène Lambert, Professor of International Law at the University of Westminster, has provided a policy contribution to this issue. In an article entitled 'The Link between Statelessness and Refugeehood', she explores the interaction between the status of a 'stateless person' and a 'refugee' in international law and calls for a re-examination of this link.

You can read her article in the International Affairs Forum's Winter 2016 issue.
