Qualitative Info

Statelessness is not mentioned as a ground of discrimination in any of the relevant legislation. In practice, discrimination on grounds of statelessness would be considered as discrimination on grounds of ethnic afiliation with the exception referring to nationality in Art. §§ 17 (2) and 31 (2) Equal Treatment Act that the principle of equal treatment 'does neither affect the regulations and conditions on immigration of citizens of third countries or stateless persons or their residence nor the treatment which arises from the legal status of the third-country nationals or stateless persons.'
