Summary

State succession can lead to the emergence of a large number of stateless persons. The treaty therefore builds upon the 1997 European Convention on Nationality (ETS No. 166) by developing more detailed rules to be applied by States with a view to preventing, or at least reducing to the extent possible, cases of statelessness arising from State succession.
