"This work looks at the phenomenon of statelessness in Europe from a number of different perspectives. In the first instance it explores the legal position of statelessness in European and international law. It then provides a contemporary account of displaced populations in the European Union, drawing on case studies from the 'old' and the 'new' Europe: France, the United Kingdom, Estonia and Slovenia. Finally the editors suggest how the European Union might develop a legal response to statelessness. This innovative and important study will be of huge interest to European lawyers specialising in immigration and citizenship and to political scientists in the field. It will also appeal to international and human rights lawyers"-- Provided by publisher.
