Editorial Reviews


'The tragic life of a stateless Forrest Gump.... The bizarre and shocking story of Kamal in Stateless.' Maarten Reijders, Amnesty International

'The prologue grabs the reader and the book is a joy to read, even though the story is sometimes stomach-churning. The writer has captured the impact of statelessness in a very palpable way.' Rene Bruin, former head of office, UNHCR Netherlands

'A gripping tale set against the background of some extraordinary events in 20th-century history. Full of surprising, moving and sometimes heartrending twists and turns, in which statelessness surfaces again and again as an obstacle to happiness and a normal life.' Laura van Waas, director Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion

About the Author

Gerard van Leeuwen is an education expert, who now helps put the results of academic research into practice. A chance encounter with Kamal and his astonishment about what can happen to one man in his life for the simple reason that he has no birth certificate, inspired him to write this book. This is his attempt to highlight the humanity of stateless people and of refugees, who are often reduced to statistics, case files and quotas, but are in fact just people like you and me.
