A stateless nation is a non-sovereign people. Yesterday, it was the case of Ireland, Poland or Latvia, when they lived under the control of other states. Today, these people have found their freedom. But the Europe of the 21st century still knows many cases of stateless nations.

Author Biography: In 1999, Mikael Bodlore-Penlaez founded the internet site www.eurominority.eu devoted to stateless nations and minority people of Europe. He regularly collaborates to produce bodies of work and geographical charts on this subject. The creation of this atlas relied on the support of a team of specialists on the question of ‘minorities’ across Europe.
Further Information: Their names: Alsacians, Basques, Bretons, Catalans, Corsican, Scottish, Frisians, Welsh, Sorbians… These people have always defended their strong identity. Marked by particular cultural traits, they know how to sxpress their feeling of belonging to a community bound together by history. But who really knows their aspirations, of their quest for recognition of freedom, the desire to control their destiny. To speak their language, or to be officially recognised?
