Our first GLOBALCIT Webinar “Citizenship Revocation: Comparative Perspectives and Challenges” has been co-organised with the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion.
This webinar addressed the challenges that this revival raises for the study of citizenship as a secure and equal membership in a state. What is new about citizenship revocation practices? If citizenship can be, and is, more easily revoked by state authorities, does this imply a new conditional form of membership? How well can practices be compared between contexts? And, finally, how to ensure that international law obligations of states apply to all relevant situations in which states take or consider taking steps to deprive a person of citizenship as a national security measure.
