Abstract:

Of the five chapters, the first three chapters of this report consider issues that are foundational to the efficient working of any immigration regime: citizenship and registration law. The final two chapters focus more centrally on immigration and refugee law. However, it is argued that harmonization of practices and standards in the first two areas would not only improve and simplify management but would also facilitate the process of harmonizing immigration, migration and refugee law.
