This is the third advocacy briefing in our series on statelessness and the Ukraine crisis. It provides updated information and recommendations on access to protection for stateless refugees from Ukraine, including under the EU Temporary Protection Directive (TPD).
This third advocacy briefing in our series on statelessness and the Ukraine crisis draws on country briefings produced with our members and local lawyers to provide an update on current protection gaps for refugees from Ukraine who are stateless or at risk of statelessness (including those with undetermined nationality).
Our analysis of routes to protection for refugees from Ukraine in 17 European countries shows that there are significant protection gaps across Europe for stateless people. To prevent discrimination, avoid over-burdening asylum procedures, and facilitate eventual safe return to Ukraine, it is imperative that these gaps are addressed by national and regional authorities.
