Despite this guarantee, people in all parts of the world face the prospect of living without a nationality or citizenship. The exact number of stateless people is still unknown, but UNHCR estimates that there are at least 12 million stateless globally. In 2014, the UNHCR announced its Campaign to end Statelessness in ten years. The same year, the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion reported that more people in Asia and the Pacific are affected by statelessness than in any other region of the world.
