Practices and Approaches in EU Member States to Prevent and End Statelessness (Study for the LIBE Committee)
This study, commissioned by the European Parliament's Policy Department for Citizens' Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the LIBE Committee, describes the practices and approaches in all EU Member States as regards the prevention and eradication of statelessness.
The study examines the practices and approaches in all EU Member States concerning the prevention and eradication of statelessness.
For that purpose, the study analyses the relevant international and European standards and assesses the national practices in light of these standards. Since the prevention and eradication of statelessness depends on proper mechanisms to identify stateless populations, the subject of procedures for determining statelessness is addressed. The study also investigate whether installing such a procedure creates a ‘pull factor’. Finally, the study ends with a detailed analysis of the possible role of the European Union in preventing and reducing statelessness.
