Proposed Citizenship Changes and Refugees/Stateless Persons

"Applicants will need to demonstrate their integration into the Australian community'': Proposed Citizenship Changes and Refugees/Stateless Persons

According to the Federal Government’s proposed 2017 citizenship package, which will be re-introduced in 2018, applicants for citizenship by conferral would be required to show that they have ‘integrated into the Australian community’. This lecture examines the idea of integration requirements, using evidence from other jurisdictions to sketch out the meaning and scope of the concept. It analyses the background for the proposed changes and examines their possible consequences, especially for refugees/stateless persons.

This seminar is part of the Statelessness Seminar Series, presented by the Peter McMullin Centre on Statelessness and the Statelessness Hallmark Research Initiative.
