Summary/Abstract: This policy brief – prepared in the context of the ILEC-project (Involuntary Loss of European Citizenship: Exchanging Knowledge and Identifying Guidelines for Europe) is concerned with situations in which a person who assumed to possess the nationality of a country is confronted with the discovery that (s)he never acquired the nationality of the country involved. Even though the authorities may argue that the person concerned never did acquire this nationality, this person will experience this as loss of nationality.
