Identifying and addressing statelessness in the refugee context is vital to prevent serious human rights violations. It is essential that Europe recognises and addresses statelessness if it is to uphold its traditions of freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights.

This report outlines key emerging challenges, gaps and opportunities for action to protect the rights of stateless refugees and prevent new cases of statelessness arising in the context of forced migration in Europe.
