Abstract

The most recent influx of migrants from North African countries to Europe resuscitated the European Union debate on immigration policy. Statelessness in the European Union is a welcome and timely addition to the debate. Moreover, the book is a valuable contribution to the more general ongoing discussion on the changing nature of state sovereignty and its effect on noncitizens and the value of citizenship. The book will be of particular interest to individuals studying issues raised by migration, particularly in Europe, as well as those who study the rights of noncitizens.

Keywords: statelessness, European Union, human rights

JEL Classification: K33, K40
