Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, Colleagues,
Thank you very much to the IDMC for inviting me again to join Elisabeth to launch this year's Global Overview. The Overview, and the analysis and advocacy work that IDMC does throughout the year, are invaluable in helping those of us caught up in the urgency of response to understand the trends and the sheer scale of the challenge that internal displacement poses globally. As the Overview makes clear, so many internal displacement situations around the world are long-term, and the report helps make sure these issues stay on the agenda.

- UNHCR should take stronger leadership in pressing governments to find and implement solutions for stateless persons and urge all countries, including the U.S., to become party and adhere to the statelessness conventions.
- H.E. the Amir of Kuwait and the Parliament should formalize and implement a plan to secure the civil and political rights to which every person is entitled.
The world community is no longer silent about statelessness. In recent years, countries such as Bangladesh, Estonia, Mauritania, Nepal, and Sri Lanka have made significant strides to protect the rights of stateless persons. The response of the United Nations (UN) has improved. Non-governmental agencies, legal experts, affected individuals, and others are joining forces to gather more accurate information and reduce the incidence of this often overlooked global phenomenon. Media attention has increased.
