4: The Acquisition and Loss of Citizenship in a Constitutional Context


This chapter examines the direct and indirect impacts of constitutional law upon the terms of citizenship as a legal status, including issues of acquisition and loss and the ever present shadow of statelessness. The focus is on the main modes of acquisition and loss of citizenship, with consideration in addition of associated topics such as dual citizenship. The chapter raises the important question of how higher constitutional norms such as equality can shape citizenship as a legal status.
