Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the methodology used in the book, which discusses international law regulation and its effects on nationality and residence. It primarily focuses on 'near equality' questions and integration requirements for third country nationals. The chapter focuses on a number of tenets of nationality: access to nationality (ius soli, ius sanguinis and naturalization), conflicts of nationality laws (toleration of multiple nationality), as well as cases in which we can refer to the right to nationality for specific groups. Functions of nationality (rights to enter, reside and not to be expelled) are discussed primarily on the basis of human rights norms under different regimes. In addition, the focus is on developments which involve rights granted to third country nationals residing in host countries on a long-term basis. The contents of diplomatic protection will also be addressed as part of the functional aspect of nationality in international law.

Keywords:diplomatic protection; international law regulation; nationality laws; third country
