Dear Community,

Before meeting Christiana and joining the Statefree team, I conducted research on statelessness in Germany. It was an eye-opening experience and made clear how many barriers to fundamental rights exist and how much structural change is still needed. I am happy to share that the results of my research were published in a peer-reviewed journal, which you can find here:

The paper argues that de facto statelessness is produced and reproduced by the German citizenship regime, restrictive naturalization requirements and inadequate administrative practices. It makes clear why a fair and transparent statelessness determination procedure is both necessary and urgent. I hope the paper can contribute to a critical debate about necessary legal and political changes. Feedback and comments are very welcome!
