UNHCR 19-02-14:

UNHCR and UNICEF urge action in Europe to end childhood statelessness till sidans topp

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and UNICEF, the UN Children's Agency, are calling on States and regional organisations to take urgent action to ensure no child is born, or remains, stateless in Europe.

While there are no precise figures on the total numbers of stateless children, more than half a million people in Europe are estimated to be stateless.

As the overall number of asylum-seeking children in Europe has grown since 2010, with peaks in 2015 and 2016, so has the number of children identified as 'stateless'. In 2017 some 2,100 children were registered as 'stateless', which represented a four-fold increase compared to 2010.

Children without a nationality have limited access to basic rights and services such as education and healthcare and can face life-long discrimination. Lack of official documents can put children at greater risk of experiencing violence, abuse and trafficking, and place them and their families at risk of arrest and detention.

"Life is stacked against a stateless child right from the start. Like all of us, they can dream, and they can hope, but the legal obstacles they face often mean their dreams are dashed before they are adults, and their potential squandered," said Pascale Moreau, UNHCR's Director of the Bureau for Europe.

Three groups of children are particularly affected:

+ Children who are born stateless in Europe. These include children who cannot inherit their parents' nationality due to gender discrimination and gaps in nationality laws, and those who are stateless because their parents are.

+ Children born in Europe whose births are not registered, including children in vulnerable minority populations like the Roma.

+ Children from countries with known stateless populations who come to Europe as refugees and asylum-seekers.

UNHCR November 2018:

Good practices in nationality laws for the prevention and reduction of statelessness till sidans topp

Handbook for Parliamentarians

The problem of statelessness is more widely recognized today than it has been in the recent past, thanks largely to the efforts of Governments, international organizations and non-governmental institutions to call attention to the plight of stateless people and the importance of preventing and reducing statelessness. The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the UN Agency mandated to address statelessness, have long collaborated on this subject, supporting the ability of Parliaments to reform nationality laws in accordance with international standards designed to help prevent statelessness from arising. To this end, the two organizations jointly issued a first edition of a Handbook for Parliamentarians on Nationality and Statelessness in 2005. A second edition of the handbook was published in 2014, the same year that UNHCR launched the #IBelong Campaign to End Statelessness by 2024. Building on these efforts, UNHCR and the IPU are pleased to issue this new publication, a Handbook for parliamentarians, Good practices in nationality laws for the prevention and reduction of statelessness. It complements the previous publication, which was focused largely on the international framework for the right to a nationality and the technical causes of statelessness. This new handbook offers practical examples of domestic legal provisions that allow States to accomplish the following:

+ Avoid childhood statelessness entirely

+ Eliminate gender discrimination from nationality laws

+ Establish procedures to identify stateless persons and facilitate their naturalization

+ Ensure that any deprivation or loss of nationality does not leave individuals stateless

This handbook also identifies and promotes certain good practices in nationality laws that all States are encouraged to consider.
