Measuring progress to address statelessness (EMN Inform)
The EMN has collected data on statelessness from across EU Member States and Georgia to assess progress, draw key findings on the state of play, and provide an overview of how statelessness is addressed.
The Inform collects data on statelessness from across EU Member States (including Belgium) and Georgia to assess progress, draw key findings on the state of play, and provides an overview of how statelessness is addressed. The Inform was produced by the EMN Platform of Statelessness under the coordination of the EMN Luxembourg.
Please find below some key findings:
- Member States provided statistics from official sources; thus data on stateless persons who are not officially recorded is not included in this inform.
- The main reasons given as the basis for applications for stateless status were state secession; coming from a nonrecognised state; discriminatory nationality laws or failure to declare births or register births within time limits set by law.
- The main countries/regions of origin of stateless applicants included post-Soviet states, countries of the former Yugoslavia, the Western Sahara, Palestine, Lebanon, Armenia and Greece.
More findings can be found in the Inform itself (above).
