20 July 2021: European Network on Statelessness: Childhood statelessness in the UK is not currently adequately understood by government officials, legal practitioners, judges, politicians, policy advocates, frontline service providers, local authority staff, and others.
The European Network on Statelessness has been working with its UK members to better understand the causes of childhood statelessness, the children affected, the consequences for them and their families, and what action could be taken to help prevent and reduce childhood statelessness in the UK.
Our new report “Invisible Kids: Childhood statelessness in the UK” presents the evidence base on childhood statelessness in the UK. The report aims to raise awareness about who may be affected, support those working with children and young people to identify and respond to statelessness, and advocate for evidence-based solutions to prevent and reduce childhood statelessness in the UK.
