The European Migration Network (EMN) was entrusted by JHA Council Conclusions of 3 and 4 December 2015 with the creation of a platform to exchange information and good practices in the field of statelessness – Platform of Statelessness.

This EMN Inform is an update to the EMN Inform on Statelessness in the EU, published in November 2016. It updates the information in the first Inform via an EMN Ad-Hoc Query in March 2019 in preparation for their jointly-organised technical conference in Dublin in May 2019. The Ad-Hoc Query and conference focused on the nexus between the granting of a stateless status and residence permits. This Inform also draws on the results of earlier work including ad-hoc queries in 2015 and in 2016, and the policy brief resulting from the EMN conference “Tackling statelessness: Exchange of Experiences and Good Practices”  organised in Luxembourg on 15 April 2016. The Inform was updated with the collaboration of UNHCR and also draws on other sources of information which helped to fill certain gaps in the analysis.
