Annual Report of the Platform on Statelessness
There are approximately 600.000 stateless persons in Europe. Its most common causes include state succession, ill-defined or discriminatory nationality laws, arbitrary deprivation of nationality, displacement and forced migration, birth as a stateless person, lack of birth registration or inability to satisfy certain requirements for the acquisition of nationality. The EMN Platform on Statelessness has the intention to raise awareness in regard with statelessness and to bring all relevant stakeholders in the field together: representatives of Member States, European Commission, European Parliament, European agencies, international organisations, and NGOs. The first practical objective of this Platform was to determine the state of play regarding statelessness in the European Union.
