Faces of statelessness
Stateless people in Europe remain vulnerable to human rights abuses every day, from destitution on our streets to long periods of immigration detention with no prospect of return. Many are separated from their families for years.
The reason for this is that most European states have yet to put in place procedures to identify stateless persons and take them out of limbo by giving them a residence permit and the chance to re-build their lives.
However, the solution is simple, and ENS has published a good practice guide on how states can set up a functioning statelessness determination procedure and bring Europe’s legal ghosts out of the shadows.
