EMN Inform: Statelessness in the European Union
Statelessness is a global phenomenon, concerning approximately 3.9 million people worldwide. The estimated number of persons either determined stateless or of undetermined nationality in the European Union plus Norway was 399 283 at the end of 2018. In 2017, there were 2,100 children registered stateless in Europe, a fourfold increase since 2010. And for those individuals recognised as being stateless, adults and children, what does that recognition mean in terms of access to residence, rights, support and travel documents? How is statelessness determined? A new Inform from the European Migration Network reveals the current state of play in the EU Member States and Norway.
