European Network on Statelessness Incorporated with Its Own Legal Identity

On 1 September 2014, European Network on Statelessness (ENS) incorporated with its own legal entity with the seat in London.

ENS was established in June 2012 as the joint initiative of Asylum Aid, Equal Rights Trust, Hungarian Helsinki Committee, the Open Society Justice Initiative, Praxis, and the Statelessness Programme at Tilburg University. ENS encourages regional and international institutions to address statelessness within their respective mandates. We also urge countries in the region to adopt policies to prevent and reduce statelessness, and to provide protection to stateless persons.

The European Network on Statelessness now has 50 member organisations in over 30 countries in Europe. With an aim to build capacities among creators of public policies and civil society organizations in Europe, ENS provides training and expertise and is also a forum for dedicated research, monitoring and exchange of information in the area of statelessness. According to ENS, every person has the right to nationality and stateless persons have the right to adequate support – including the right to regulate their status and enjoy basic civic, economic, social and cultural rights in accordance with the international human rights law.

Praxis has been the member of ENS since its establishment and it is also a member of Advisory Committee along with the following organizations and individuals:
