Описание: Read Peter's Op-ed on Trump's Immigration Ban in The New York Times The rise of dual citizenship could hardly have been imaginable to a time traveler from a hundred or even fifty years ago. Dual nationality was once considered an offense to nature, an abomination on the order of bigamy. It was the stuff of titanic battles between the United States and European sovereigns. As those conflicts dissipated, dual citizenship continued to be an oddity, a condition that, if not quite freakish, was nonetheless vaguely disreputable, a status one could hold but not advertise. Even today, some Americans mistakenly understand dual citizenship to somehow be “illegal”, when in fact it is completely tolerated. Only recently has the status largely shed the opprobrium to which it was once attached. At Home in Two Countries charts the history of dual citizenship from strong disfavor to general acceptance. The status has touched many; there are few Americans who do not have someone in their past or present who has held the status, if only unknowingly. The history reflects on the course of the state as an institution at the level of the individual. The state was once a jealous institution, justifiably demanding an exclusive relationship with its members. Today, the state lacks both the capacity and the incentive to suppress the status as citizenship becomes more like other forms of membership. Dual citizenship allows many to formalize sentimental attachments. For others, it’s a new way to game the international system. This book explains why dual citizenship was once so reviled, why it is a fact of life after globalization, and why it should be embraced today.
Описание: The book is targeted at academics and students working in the field of migration and asylum law. It will also be of interest to practitioners and to policy makers in Europe, as the first extended scholarly analysis of this field of Irish law. Many of the significant legislative, constitutional and jurisprudential changes that have occurred, have resulted from contested claims arising under EU, ECHR and comparative constitutional law. The book will interest scholars across these fields, and will become a key reference work for the legal profession and researchers in the rapidly expanding area of migration and asylum law. The book is likely to attract significant interest in North America, where debates on citizenship law in Ireland in particular have been followed closely, given the transnational judicial dialogue in Irish courts, referencing US case-law, and the close links between academics and the superior courts in both jurisdictions. Current scholarly work on citizenship law in Ireland has been widely cited in key texts by leading immigration law scholars in the US and Canada, for example.

Описание: A Guide to the Immigration Act 2016 is produced in association with ILPA and provides a clear and straightforward explanation to the provisions of this legislation, with relevant commentary following each section of the Act. Those litigating will be able to identify all relevant sources and materials rapidly. Practitioners from other areas of law affected by the provisions in the context of housing, social welfare and employment law will be able rapidly to navigate these complex provisions and to understand them. The UK Government stated that its purpose in bringing forward this legislation was to tackle illegal immigration by making it harder to live and work in the United Kingdom without permission. The Immigration Act 2016 not only makes changes to immigration law and practice but also extends immigration control into other areas such as housing, social welfare and employment to create the ‘hostile environment’ envisaged. The approach is to summarise each provision of the Act and to set it within both its political and legal context, providing full legal references as well identifying relevant guidance, supporting materials and statements from parliamentary debates. The aim of the publication is to provide practitioners and academic and political commentators with a comprehensive guide to the Act, the bulk of the work being comments on the legal provisions interleaved with each section of the Act.
