      The consideration of issues concerning the legalization of foreign nationals and stateless persons, whose number is considerable in Stavropol Krai, aroused a special interest of the participants of the seminar. These aspects were broached by Anfisa V. Kondaurova, Senior Lieutenant of the Internal Service, Senior Inspector of the Department of Invitation and Registration of Foreign Nationals of the Federal Migration Service Department of Stavropol Krai, in her lecture on the subject “The practice of applying the law on migratory registration of foreign nationals and stateless persons.

  The necessity of considering these subjects was caused by a great number of problems, to the solution of which the activity of human rights defenders rendering assistance to migrants (foreign nationals, stateless persons, refugees and asylum seekers) is directed. The analysis of training courses organized and conducted by SRPCO “Faith, Hope, and Love” before shows a great importance of conducting such arrangements in order to improve the quality of work of NGO lawyers and advocates.
