I will be very interested to hear about the workshop ,it will be wise for you to report or give us feedback about the workshop because here in Flagstaff Eastern Cape have a lot of Migrants who want to go back to their countries for specific periods like three months and come back without cancellation of their permit so I like to know that is it possible for them to be get a letter for Department of Home Affairs that support the return of their traveling from South Africa to Ethiopia and back to South Africa without cancellation of permit?

It’s exciting that so many events will be happening in Hong Kong next week!

I’ll be in town for a Statelessness Network Asia Pacific (SNAP) roundtable focused on community-based approaches to documenting citizenship and other forms of legal identity. It will build on the Namati-OSJI citizenship practitioner’s guide, which was developed in cooperation with UNHCR and published earlier this year.

Unfortunately I won’t make it in time for the Legal Empowerment Workshop on the 24th, but I look forward to hearing updates and outcomes! :smile:

Hope to be able to interact with other network members who will be in Hong Kong for the 7th Asia Pro Bono Conference, LE Workshop, and other events!
