Revoking a person's citizenship on national security grounds is among the most controversial of powers that governments exercise.
On 10 May 2019 the Bingham Centre hosted an expert roundtable that considered these powers. It was held to assist the work of the Australian Independent National Security Legislation Monitor, Dr James Renwick SC, who was conducting a review of citizenship revocation provisions in that country.
Experts from academia, the legal profession and civil society looked at how the UK laws and experience might inform the Australian review, considering matters such as the necessity, effectiveness and the proportionality of the laws, international obligations, procedural fairness, safeguards and scrutiny.
Dr Renwick will report in August 2019.
