Deportation, Removal, Exclusion and Deprivation of Citizenship

Edited by: Eric Fripp

Contributions by: Rowena Moffatt, Ellis Wilford

Resort by the State to measures of exclusion and expulsion from the territory of the United Kingdom and/or from British citizenship have multiplied over the past decade, following the so-called 'war on terror,' increased globalization, and the growing politicization of national policies concerning immigration and citizenship. This book focuses on the law and practice governing deportation, removal, and exclusion from the UK, as well as the refusal of naturalization and deprivation of British citizenship. It assesses the law and practice in these areas as a cohesive area of State activity. The undertaking is a vital one because, while these areas of law and practice have long existed as the hard edge of UK immigration and nationality laws, in recent years they have expanded beyond secondary existence as mere mechanisms of enforcement. The body of law, practice, and policy created by this process is one which justifies treatment as a primary concern for public lawyers. The book provides a comprehensive analysis of the law in these areas. This involves a consideration of interlocking international and regional rights instruments, European Union law, and the domestic regime. It is a clear and comprehensive guide for practitioners, and it offers invaluable insight into likely developments in this dynamic area of public law.
