On 4-5 May 2017, the European Network on Statelessness will hold a major conference in Budapest to launch a new comparative report as well as to provide a platform for concerted region-wide advocacy aimed at protecting stateless persons from arbitrary detention.
The conference (download the draft agenda) is intended to facilitate the sharing of information among stakeholders from across Europe - including lawyers, NGOs and academics as well as representatives from governments, inter-governmental-organisations, ombudspersons/monitoring bodies and other stakeholders mandated to work on issues related to immigration detention.
You can register online. There is no conference fee although participants are expected to fund their own travel, accommodation and subsistence costs. Due to limited places it is recommended to apply as early as possible. Registration deadline is 22 March. If you have any question regarding the conference please email Jan Brulc on firstname.lastname@example.org
