We’ve created the #StatelessJourneys knowldge hub, to host new information and tools about how statelessness affects people’s journeys, including country of origin information, information about relevant stakeholders, case studies outlining the main issues, country briefings and more. We will be updating this section regularly with new publications.

Country position papers

Country Position Papers (CPPs) provide information on the profiles of stateless individuals and persons who may be at risk of statelessness due to nationality or civil documentation problems.


Our research shows that stateless refugees are more likely to experience discrimination and face additional problems on their journeys because states do not identify or take their nationality problems into account.


Country briefings

Country briefings provide information based on initial findings from research in Greece, Serbia and the Netherlands and make recommendations for action to address challenges at national and regional levels.


Listen to the #StatelessJourneys podcasts, which document the journeys made by Nirjevan, Ibrahim and Ayman seeking protection in Europe. They are stateless Syrians – those who fled from a country they never officially belonged to.

European Network on Statelessness

The European Network on Statelessness (ENS) is a civil society alliance of over 140 non-governmental organisations, academics and individual experts in 40 countries, committed to addressing statelessness in Europe. We believe that everyone has the right to a nationality and that those who lack nationality altogether – stateless persons – are entitled to full protection of their human rights.

The Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion (ISI) is an independent non-profit organisation with the mission to promote inclusive societies by realising and protecting the right to a nationality. We are working to address discrimination and promote inclusive citizenship, realise every child’s right to a nationality, tackle statelessness as a cause and consequence of displacement, make the stateless visible to development programming and counter arbitrary deprivation of nationality, particularly in security contexts.
