At a glance

This article, written by Alison Harvey, looks at the effects of the differential treatment, in particular on the grounds of gender or birth status, in nationality law, and at its characterisation as the present-day effects of historical discrimination, or as ongoing discrimination.  It examines the scope for eliminating discrimination in nationality law.  It considers whether what is at stake is ‘righting the wrongs of history’ or present-day discriminatory laws.  It considers the extent to which discrimination and the wrongs of history are amplified by the hostile environment and the treatment of persons under immigration control.
