Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the text of the Convention on the reduction of cases of multiple nationality. Nationals of the Contracting Parties who are of full age and who acquire their own free will, by means of naturalisation, option or recovery, the nationality of another Party shall lose their former nationality. They shall not be authorised to retain their former nationality. Any Contracting Party may, by a declaration made to the Secretary General of the Council of Europe on signature or on depositing its instrument of ratification, acceptance or accession, or at any subsequent time, with regard to States and territories for which it assumes international responsibility, or for which it is empowered to contract, define the term "nationals" and specify the "territories" to which the present Convention shall be applicable.
