Submission to the Special Rapporteur on Minority Issues – Statelessness: A Minorities Issue


This joint submission to the Special Rapporteur on Minority Issues by the European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC), the European Network on Statelessness (ENS) and the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion (ISI) focuses on the statelessness and discrimination facing Roma in the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia) and Ukraine. It draws on the recently published report, ‘Roma Belong: Statelessness, Discrimination and Marginalisation of Roma in the Western Balkans and Ukraine’ and the forthcoming country reports on Ukraine and Albania.

These reports explore the nexus between statelessness, discrimination and marginalisation of Romani people in European Union candidate and neighbourhood countries in the Western Balkans and Ukraine and form part of the #RomaBelong partnership project.
