Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of this book, which explains the most common terms used in comparative nationality law, not only in English but, since it involves the use of other languages as well, also in French, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese. The book examines the Caribbean territories that have never become independent and belong to France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, or the United States. While they do not have their own nationality legislation, by belonging to the Caribbean region they certainly deserve separate attention, and an understanding of their institutional position within the four different countries seems indispensable for a study covering the entire Western Hemisphere. The book gives an overview of the most important nationality related case law of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, based in San Jose, Costa Rica. It concerns individual country analyses, which is with explaining the methodology and typology.

Keywords: Caribbean territories; nationality law; Western Hemisphere
