Protection against statelessness : trends and regulations in Europe
Title: Protection against statelessness : trends and regulations in Europe
Series/Number: EUDO Citizenship Observatory; Country Reportss; 2013/01
This report presents the normative background, analytical frame and key findings of the Database on Protection Against Statelessness in Europe, developed by the EUDO CITIZENSHIP Observatory in partnership with the UNHCR Statelessness Unit. The database, which was launched in March 2013, includes information on the extent to which citizenship laws in 36 European states provide sufficient protection against statelessness, in light of the most important international standards. The database is organized around a comprehensive typology of modes of protection against statelessness which outlines, in a systematic way, 17 categories of persons that are at risk of being or becoming stateless. The database is unique in its systematic comparative approach, its comprehensive geographical scope and its interactive search functionality. The database allows users to view all relevant regulations within one country or to compare different regulations across 36 European countries. For each regulation we provide precise information on provisions in national legislation, including hyperlinks to relevant laws, as well as a critical assessment, against the normative background of established international norms.
