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.
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.
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.
As part of the project we’ve produced a number of leaflets aimed at response actors and stateless people arriving to Europe.
- Statelessness: A Short Guide for Refugees & Asylum Seekers
- بدون تابعیت بودن به چه معناست : راهنمای کوتاه برای پناهندگان و پناهجویان
- انعدام الجنسية (انتفاء الجنسية):دليل قصير من أجل اللاجئين وطالبي اللجوء
- Statelessnes: A short guide for refugee response actors in Europe
- Statelessness: What do you need to know?
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.
