“Everyone has the right to a nationality”

Today ENS hands over its petition in the European Parliament!

14 October 2014

Today the European Network on Statelessness (ENS) which represents over fifty civil society organisations from across Europe will hand over a petition to members of the European Parliament calling on European leaders to protect stateless persons across Europe by ratifying the UN Statelessness Convention and committing to set up a system of safeguards and a regularisation procedure.

The petition coincides with the 60th anniversary of the 1954 UN Statelessness Convention, and is part of a wider campaign bringing together a broad spectrum of actors mounting pressure on the European Union to fulfil its pledge made in 2012 that all Member States would accede to the 1954 Statelessness Convention.
