The State Minister for Diaspora attended “Mobilization against statelessness” conference, which included a report on “Mapping the population at risk of statelessness in Albania” and “Roma people belong – statelessness, discrimination, and marginalization of Roma community”. Recommendations from both reports stress the importance of enhancing inter-ministerial and cross-border cooperation, ensure access to free legal aid for those more disadvantaged, reduce administrative hurdles for birth registration, and align national legislation to international standards.
