Chapter Summary

From the beginning of the British occupation in 1917 until the enactment of the Palestinian Citizenship Order in Council in 1925,226 the nationality of Palestines inhabitants remained in transition. While the Palestine Mandate and the Treaty of Lausanne recognized a distinct nationality for Palestines inhabitants on the international plane, Palestinian nationality lacked comprehensive domestic regulation at that time. The status of Palestine and the nationality of its inhabitants were finally settled by the Treaty of Lausanne from the international law perspective. The Treaty of Lausanne had transformed the de facto status of, and practice relating to, Palestinian nationality into de jure existence from an international law angle. Indeed, The coming into force of the Treaty of Peace enabled Laws of Nationality to be issued by the three Governments, and the change of subjection which has occurred de facto to be transformed into a changed de jure.
