VM344 - Support for International Refugees and the Stateless Motion, TSR Conservative and Unionist Party
Support for International Refugees and the Stateless Motion

This House believes that the government should seek a solution to the global refugee and statelessness and encourage our colleagues in the EU and around the globe to do so also, rather than focusing solely on individual, relatively small crises.

The news this year has been dominated by the migrant crises in the Mediterranean and Calais, however this is just a small fraction of the global refugee population, currently estimated to be in excess of sixty million; furthermore, the UNHCR estimate there could be as many as 10 million stateless peoples around the globe.

We should stop focusing on this refugee issue here, or that refugee issue there; we should stop ignoring the millions of refugees that have fled the Islamic State extremists, or other middle eastern wars, or those fleeing from Bangladesh, or any of the countless war-zones in Africa, instead we should be striving for an overarching solution to the global refugee crisis and proliferation of statelessness.

One such solution that could solve the global issue rather than just localised ones has been proposed by the Refugee Nation project, which has been featured in several major publications and organisations, including but not limited to BBC World News, Forbes, The Washington Post, TIME, The Telegraph, and the University of Oxford. The project intends to set up a new, democratic nation for the refugees and stateless of the world. A nation with a common language, most likely English due to its prevalence and a democratically elected government.
