The Statelessness Index is an online tool that assesses how countries in Europe protect stateless people and what they are doing to prevent and reduce statelessness. It is the first initiative providing comprehensive and accessible comparative analysis for several countries in Europe, including Malta. It allows users to quickly understand which areas of law, policy and practice can be improved by states.
The Index was developed by the European Network on Statelessness (ENS), in partnership with Aditus Foundation for the Malta section. It is an invaluable tool for sharing good practice and raising awareness of issues that affect stateless people.
We have bene working on the Malta section for several years, providing annual updates and relying on the Index for our advocacy efforts to see Malta introduce a statelessness determination procedure, a stateless status and related rights.
