FRA’s focus was on what kind of protection the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, and EU law more generally offer to protect stateless people from arbitrary detention. The pan-regional conference took place on 5 May in Budapest. The aim of the conference was to launch a new ENS comparative report as well as to provide a platform for concerted region-wide advocacy to protect stateless people from arbitrary detention.

The conference was intended to facilitate the information sharing among stakeholders from across Europe – including lawyers, NGOs and academics as well as representatives from governments, inter-governmental organisations, ombudspersons/monitoring bodies mandated to work on issues related to immigration detention.
