In Europe, statelessness occurs both among recent migrants and among people who have lived in the same place for generations. Despite the scale of the problem, most European countries have no framework to effectively deal with statelessness and tackling this requires major law and policy reform.
Around 600,000 stateless persons live in Europe today, including many migrants stuck in perpetual limbo. They urgently require our protection.
