Abstrakt

Statelessness is a global phenomenon as it affects around 12 million people around the world (UNHCR, 2019). Yet, not many people are familiar with the issue, making it invisible to the public. The UNHCR attempts to give statelessness a visible platform through the 2014 #IBELONG campaign which aims to end statelessness by 2024. By taking a qualitative approach to this research and conducting a content analysis, this paper looks into the process of mediation of the stateless people in order to investigate how the #IBELONG campaign contributes to the visibility of statelessness, by mobilising spectators.
