Campaign for UK Citizenship

Home / Campaign for UK Citizenship

Chagossian Voices has been working since October 2020 to support and campaign for the global diaspora of Chagossians. We have played a key role in the successful campaign to obtain UK citizenship for all people of Chagossian descent in the Nationality and Borders Act. We have achieved this through:

  • our submissions and petitions to government departments
  • our well researched documents, briefings and case studies
  • our conferences
  • our meetings and networks with MPs, Peers, government departments and ministers
  • our contacts with the press and broadcast media
  • influencing via social media.

Chagossian Voices were referenced/cited on three occasions in the UK Parliament during the passage of the Nationality and Borders Bill and our influential briefing is on the Parliament website at https://bills.parliament.uk/publications/43047/documents/781
