International Standards on Nationality Law

Texts, Cases and Materials

By Oliver Willem Vonk, Gerard-Rene de Groot

While nationality law has traditionally been part of the nation-state's 'reserved domain', recent decades have witnessed a growing body of international standards and guidelines in this area. This book provides the first comprehensive collection of multilateral international treaties, other international documents and case law of international tribunals regarding nationality law. Together these materials reflect the currently existing status of nationality under international law. In addition, from being a stable field of law, nationality law has been subject to growing instrumentalization and change. International Standards on Nationality Law thus examines topical issues relating to nationality, such as discriminatory practices in relation to gender, ethnicity and race, the status of surrogate-born children, diplomatic protection, the revocation of nationality of convicted terrorists, and 'citizenship-for-sale' programmes. Extensive bibliographical references have been included throughout, enabling the reader to identify relevant publications for further reading. [Subject: Nationality Law]
