The LIBE and PETI Committees organise a joint hearing on Statelessness on 29 June 2017, from 14.00 to 17.30 in room József Antall (JAN) 4Q2.

A multidimensional topic, statelessness touches upon nationality, citizenship, migration - all matters that fall within the remits of the LIBE committee but also raise concerns that EU citizens have wished to relay through petitions to the European Parliament. The status refers to matters of national sovereignty however with implications at EU level and existing multilateral rules at global level.
Statelessness will be discussed through the observation of practices and approaches in the EU Member States, specific issues of childhood statelessness, as well as the question of identification and protection of stateless persons, notably from arbitrary detention.
