Chapter Summary

Conflicts of nationality laws may result in a person having no nationality (statelessness) or more than one nationality (dual or multiple nationality). Both of these phenomena have long been considered by States as 'evils' to be avoided to the maximum possible extent for the sake of State security reasons, demographic factors and the like. Situations of multiple nationality can also arise if a new nationality is conferred on a person by naturalization or in consequence of transfer of territory without that person losing their original nationality. Cases of women and children acquiring an extra nationality because of marriage or birth should not lead to automatic loss of another nationality. The chapter focuses on two major conventions dealing with issues of statelessness, namely, the Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons and the Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness.
