Statelessness Network - Asia Pacific (SNAP) is a coalition of civil society actors seeking to address issues of statelessness in the Asia Pacific. It does so by creating a forum for civil society to collaborate and share information on lessons learned and best practices in mitigating risks of statelessness. 

Areas of Work

SNAP focuses on three main areas:

  • Developing resources for evidence-based action
  • Providing technical support
  • Facilitating capacity-strengthening opportunties

Atrocity Prevention Programs/Activities

SNAP has collaborated with other civil society groups to publish joint submissions to sessions of the Human Rights Council and its Universal Periodic Review for several countries in the Asia Pacific. These submissions, while focusing on the prevalence and effects of statelessness, also cover related human rights issues and gender dynamics.

They have also facilitated webinars focusing on specific aspects relating to statelessness, including civil and birth registration, legal identity and child statelessness.
