About the webinar:

Despite obligations for all European States to fulfil every child’s right to acquire a nationality, current legislation and practice means that children in migration face the risk of growing up stateless, impacting on their access to fundamental rights. This webinar will explore which children in migration are at risk of statelessness in Europe and why, the current challenges and gaps in realising every child’s right to a nationality and provide key recommendations for action at the national and regional level. This webinar is for individuals or organisations who would like to know more about the issue and how it affects children in migration, as well as some of the existing tools, resources and recommendations for addressing it.
