This study was commissioned by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and is an analysis of the Croatian legal framework concerning stateless persons and persons at risk of statelessness. It was conducted in the wake of UNHCR’s #IBelong Campaign and the Global Action Plan to End Statelessness by 2024. The study aims to establish the level of Croatia’s adherence to its international obligations and jurisprudence relating to the protection of stateless persons.

The present study on the situation of statelessness in Croatia presents all relevant findings and draws conclusions based on the available facts, case law, administrative practice and the surveys of relevant stakeholders. Moreover, it makes recommendations on how to improve the implementation of international and regional standards on statelessness in Croatia, both in terms of policy and legislation.
