Series: Refugee and Migration Law Discussion Group

Organised by: Refugee and Migration Law Discussion Group with PIL Discussion Group

Eric Fripp will give a talk on his new book 'Nationality and Statelessness in the International Law of Refugee Status'.

About the speaker

Eric Fripp is a barrister specialising in public, immigration and asylum law at Lamb Building, Temple. Eric Fripp has built a substantial practice focusing on the international and domestic law concerned with refugees, nationality, and statelessness, United Kingdom immigration law, domestic human rights law as applicable to immigration and/or refugee cases, and administrative law/judicial review, with his experience extending to an increasing proportion of complex and/or politically sensitive cases in all of those areas. In recent years he has also attracted broader public law and human rights work on behalf of interveners in important non-immigration related cases concerning private and family life under article 8 ECHR, the right to marry under article 12 ECHR, and freedom of thought, conscience and religion under article 9 ECHR.

About the book

International refugee law anticipates state conduct in relation to nationality, statelessness, and protection. Refugee status under the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees 1951 and regional and domestic instruments referring to it can be fully understood only against the background of international laws regarding nationality, statelessness, and the consequences of national status or the lack of it. In this significant addition to the literature a leading practitioner in these fields examines, in the light of international law, key issues regarding refugee status including identification of 'the country of his nationality', concepts of 'effective nationality', and the inclusion within 'persecution' of a range of acts or omissions focused on nationality.
