UNICEF and UNHCR Joint Observations on the proposed amendments to the Norwegian Nationality Act and Nationality Regulations

UNICEF and UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, have submitted joint observations on the proposed amendments to the Norwegian Nationality Act and Nationality Regulations (Forslag til endringer i statsborgerloven og statsborgerforskriften).

The law proposal was presented 14 July 2017 to amend the Norwegian Nationality Act and Regulations.

UNHCR and UNICEF, as agencies entrusted by the United Nations General Assembly with a mandate to prevent and reduce statelessness around the world and advocate for the protection of children’s rights, respectively, have a direct interest in proposals in the field of nationality law and policy. The joint observations were drafted through a collaborative comment and review process by UNHCR and UNICEF.
