The Platform on Statelessness of the European Migration Network (EMN), the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the European Network on Statelessness (ENS) are pleased to invite you to the upcoming conference "Addressing Statelessness in the European Union, One year on from the adoption of European Council Conclusions"

Wednesday, 18 January 2017; 8.30-1pm
Residence Palace, Rue de la Loi 155, Brussels

The  European Migration Network (EMN) has been designated by the European Council Conclusions on Statelessness of 3 and 4 December 2015 as the platform for the exchange of information on statelessness among EU Member States. Recently, the EMN Inform "Statelessness in the EU" was published, based on responses received from Member States on their current practice.

One year after the Conclusions, the conference will take stock on collective efforts to address statelessness in the EU as well as identify what further action is required. The Conference will focus on two themes: the identification and protection of stateless persons, and preventing childhood statelessness.

You can download the provisional programme. The conference will be held in English.

Deadline for registration: 13 January 2017. Please note that there is a limited number of places! You can register via email - emn@uni.lu.
