Chapter 1 introduces the context and relevance of the book; its scope, its methods, and outline. It articulates the challenges faced by the international community as a result of the separation of the international regime for the protection of refugees and stateless persons respectively into two distinct instruments. It explains that the book focuses on the potential of stateless persons who are outside their country of former habitual residence to obtain protection as refugees in international law. Hence, it is primarily concerned with stateless persons on the move between states, or stateless persons who have already moved (and not with the stateless in situ), because it is members of this group who require recognition of their status in order to establish themselves in a new country following a decision to flee.
