Chapter Summary

For the sake of clarity in terms of evaluating the Palestinian Citizenship Order of 1925, it may be useful to divide the Order, for the purpose of this chapter, into three parts: the natural acquisition of nationality, naturalization, and expatriation. The chapter tackles the question of the natural acquisition of nationality which covers: the change from Ottoman nationality to Palestinian nationality for residents of Palestine; the acquisition of nationality by Palestine's natives residing abroad; and the general principles underlying the acquisition of Palestinian nationality at birth. Three motivations were behind the enactment of the Palestinian Citizenship Order of 1925. Internationally, the Order was based on the 1922 Palestine Mandate and the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne. Domestically, it responded to certain practical needs relating to the status of the local inhabitants of Palestine. Substantively, the Orders provisions were taken principally from British law and adapted to suit the Palestinian context.
