The European Network on Statelessness (ENS) was officially launched today. Its aim is to promote legal and policy development, raise awareness, and support capacity building initiatives. The web site provides access to information about its activities, the full-text of a variety of resources (reports, policy briefs, etc.), the ENS blog, and Twitter feed. Interested parties can sign up for a newsletter, but it would also be great if the site could implement an RSS feed! For more information about this new network, read this related blog post.
