Abstract

The authors, on behalf of the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law, argue that any citizenship rules should:
• provide clarity and certainty regarding the requirements for citizenship;
• seek to treat all citizens and prospective citizens in an equal and fair manner;
• encourage new immigrants to become full members of society as promptly as possible;
• acknowledge and seek to address the barriers faced by vulnerable new arrivals such as refugees.
The Castan Centre for Human Rights Law is concerned about the proposed changes to the Australian Citizenship Act 2007 and believes that the changes should be rejected on the basis that they will increase the hurdles for citizenship and have a negative effect on migrants without actually contributing any substantial benefit.
