Peter McMullin Centre on Statelessness graduate researcher, Thomas McGee is interviewed by SBS on how statelessness is affecting the Kurds of Syria, incorporating the discriminatory census which took place during the 1960s and the more recent civil war in the country.
His most recent research project focuses on 'Syria’s changing statelessness landscape' since the start of the country’s civil war in 2011 – looking at the new kinds of statelessness that have developed and new experiences for individuals who were already stateless because of the conflict.
This builds on the research he conducted about the stateless Kurds of Syria for his Masters in Kurdish Studies at the University of Exeter, UK.
