Reporting Template

The Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion has developed a template to serve as a suggested model to help civil society stakeholders draft thematic submissions on the Article 7 “right to acquire a nationality”. The template serves as a guide, and it is not necessary for you to strictly follow it, rather to draw inspiration from it and adapt it to suit your context. This template is intentionally comprehensive so as to be as useful a tool as possible. You should not feel that your submission is required to be as comprehensive, and are encouraged to tailor your submissions according to your context and purpose.
