Current legislation and practices in a number of European States increase the risk for children in migration to grow up stateless, thus having a negative impact of their access to fundamental rights.

The paper “No child should be stateless: Ensuring the right to a nationality for children in migration in Europe”, developed by the European Network on Statelessness as part of the Initiative on Children in Migration in partnership with Child Circle and PICUM, explores which children in migration are at risk of statelessness in Europe and why, the current challenges and gaps in realising every child’s right to a nationality and provides key recommendations for action at the national and regional level.

The paper is aimed at individuals and organisations who would like to know more about the issue and how it affects children in migration, as well as some of the existing tools, resources and recommendations for addressing it.
