Amicus curiae on stateless persons' right to residence

Published: June 2018

This is an anonymised version of an amicus curiae which the European Network on Statelessness has submitted to a Norwegian court. The amicus summarises key legal arguments to support stateless persons' self-standing right to a residence permit (as a form of international protection), as well as information about the exact type of residence permit stateless persons are entitled to in the 19 countries currently operating a full or partial statelessness-specific protection regime (with specific references to national law).
