We’re marking our 10th anniversary this year! 🥳
It’s hard to capture the last ten years in a Twitter thread, but here goes nothing... Our journey in 15 tweets. 👇🧵
It’s 10 years since a group of 6 orgs came together to establish ENS.
A decade later we now have 170+ members in 41 countries.
We also have hundreds of partners & thousands of supporters who are all part of our journey seeking to end #statelessness
In 2013 we published our first publication – a guide on statelessness determination procedures providing practical support to states wanting to do more to address the issue. Fast-forward to 2022, our website now includes over 150 publications & 450+ blogs

New report 🚨

Kids born to refugees, seeking protection on the move in Europe are at risk of statelessness.

Parents without documents cannot always register their child’s birth, & women from some countries cannot pass on their nationality to kids born abroad. #StatelessJourneys
Migrants in Albania, Bulgaria, Czechia, Spain & Ukraine with stateless kids were given specialist support by @ENStatelessness members.

In this 5 min video, some of these families talk about their fight & what it means to be born without a nationality:

No child should be born without a nationality because of their parents’ migration status, or any reason

We urgently need to reform citizenship laws across Europe so any child born here who would be stateless can obtain nationality of the only country they know #StatelessJourneys
