Seminar and Articles on Deprivation of Citizenship

In February 2014, Middlesex University and Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford organised a seminar on Deprivation of Citizenship, bringing together leading scholars, legal practitioners and investigative journalists to highlight the disturbing increase in powers and use of deprivation of citizenship in the UK. The result was a fascinating set of papers and an animated discussion (the proceedings can be viewed on YouTube).

Some of the papers from the seminar (and one other paper) have now been published in a special issue of Journal of Immigration Asylum and Nationality Law which as been made open access.  You can now download them here:
