“Everyone has the right to a nationality”

Conference "None of Europe's Children Should be Stateless"

Taking place in Budapest on the 2 & 3 June 2015, this conference represented a central activity of the ENS campaign “None of Europe’s Children should be Stateless” and was convened by ENS as a forum for the sharing of knowledge on legal, policy and programming interventions that can help to realise children’s right to a nationality. It was designed as a venue for scholars, practitioners and policy makers to come together and discuss how to ensure that no more of Europe’s children suffer statelessness.

The full programme can be downloaded here and you can read an action statement adopted at the conference here. You can also view photos here.

The conference served as a stage to unveil new research conducted by ENS in eight European countries (and will be followed by a comparative final report to be published in September) as well as a springboard for the public-facing phase of ENS's campaign. We're @ENStatelessness and you can follow/join the debate on twitter #StatelessKids or email ENS Director Chris Nash chris.nash@statelessness.eu if you want to get involved with the campaign.
