Campaign to protect stateless persons in Europe

In October 2013 ENS launched a pan-European campaign to improve the protection of stateless persons in Europe. Timed to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the 1954 Statelessness Convention, this campaign brought together a broad spectrum of actors and aimed to put a human face on the statelessness issue. The campaign included an online petition which attracted over 7,000 signatures and culminated in a concerted day of action against statelessness across Europe on 14 October 2014 when the petition will be handed to European leaders.
