Naturalization of stateless persons falls under the broader problem of statelessness, which is recently drawing more and more attention. However, the issue of facilitated naturalization of stateless persons stays grossly overlooked. The present article tries to identify international and European standards and general recommendations related to facilitated access to citizenship for stateless persons. The article focuses in particular on assessment of material requirements (residence, language and other integration requirements, good character, economic resources requirements, loyalty to the State and security) and procedural aspects of naturalization (application, proceedings).
