International conference on statelessness and the right to a nationality in Europe

On 24 September 2021, the Council of Europe, through the European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ), and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) are organising an International Conference on Statelessness and the right to a nationality in Europe: progress, challenges and opportunities. The aim of the conference is to provide an opportunity for member states, national authorities with specific expertise, international organisation, civil society representatives and stateless individuals to exchange views on how to maximize their role and successfully contribute to ending statelessness in Europe and guarantee the provision of fundamental rights set out in relevant international and regional treaties. Prior to the conference, member States’ experts, judges, civil society organisations, academics and stateless individuals will hold a technical meeting on 23 September to exchange information, experiences and views and prepare concrete technical recommendations on how statelessness could be addressed in Europe.
