Title: Nationality, Statelessness and ECHR's Article 8: Comments on Genovese v. Malta
Authors: DE GROOT, Gerard-Rene
Vonk, Olivier
Issue Date: 2012
Citation: EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF MIGRATION AND LAW, 14 (3), p. 317-325
Abstract: This article analyses the landmark European Court of Human Rights case of Genovese v. Malta, which made an invaluable contribution to the field of nationality law. For the first time the European Court clearly ruled that (access to) nationality falls under the scope of protection of the ECHR as part of a person's social identity, which in turn is part of that person's private life. In this article, the authors analyse the case itself as well as its consequences for the nationality laws of several European countries.
