This section of the Toolkit contains a 10-point Checklist which serves as a tool to guide civil society stakeholders in the assessment of issues, legal gaps, and conditions in which statelessness may arise and manifest in countries under review.

Questions 4-6 of the Checklist relate to the legal framework in place in the country: are there discriminatory provisions which affect access to nationality, are there adequate safeguards to protect children born on the territory from statelessness, are there other legal gaps affecting children’s access to nationality and is the State party to relevant international treaties?
