Chapter Summary

This chapter on nationality in international law discussed the rules and limits set by international law regarding acquisition of nationality as well as conflicts of nationality laws. The book has argued that whilst human rights have a place as a component of nationality, attempts to as a theoretical basis for nationality are conceptually incoherent. It has analysed the meaning and scope of the EU citizenship concept. This book has proven that in relation to access to and loss of nationality there are limited fundamental rights. It can be concluded that the debate on nationality as a concept of international law is different nowadays compared to the debate taking place decades ago. Rules applicable in the field of regulation of nationality have significantly developed. EU citizenship has become a fundamental status on the basis of which EU citizens acquire fundamental rights granted by the EU as an organization.
