Many people around the world take for granted being born with a national identity. Belonging to a nation offers a homeland, government protection, the right to a passport and identification and access to services including health, employment, education and social security. The UNHCR estimates that at least 10 million people around the world do not have a nationality. These people are referred to as stateless people. The World's Stateless Report suggests a more accurate number to be over 15 million. Statelessness can occur due to the redrawing of borders, decolonization, gaps in nationality law, the birth of a child to parents of different nationalities, lack of access to a birth certificate and discrimination against certain ethnic groups. Concentrations of stateless people can be found in places including Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, Kuwait, The UAE, Syria, Côte d'Ivoire, Zimbabwe, Dominican Republic, the Balkan States and the former Soviet Union.
