Who we are
We give a voice to stateless people in Italy
The strength of UNIA lies not only in the values we stand for, but above all in our concrete initiatives. As an ETS Association, we have realised that with collaboration the best results can be achieved. That is why in 2022 we decided to found the Unione Italiana Apolidi ETS.
The team that formed the Unione Italiana Apolidi ETS association is made up of members who, to date, are stateless, former stateless or stateless not yet recognised. During one of the periodic meetings with UNHCR, we had the opportunity to expose what the problems inherent in being stateless in Italy were and to hypothesising what the relative solutions to them might be, being ourselves the witnesses of what we tell.
Subsequently, we continued to meet us online, outside of ordinary meetings, deepening our common interests and individual skills. We came to the conclusion that through our capacities and the support of other organisations we could create what is now the Unione Italiana Apolidi, defying the obstacles of fate and standing up for the rights of the 'invisible'.
