A qualitative case study shows how the migration regime of Sweden aggravates conditions of statelessness through managerial aspects of categorisations, temporalities, passivisation and spatialities. The article illustrates how securitised migration politics are detrimental to how statelessness is lived and experienced but also that stateless migrants actively engage with this regime in order to resist, protest and achieve change. Using counter-conduct as a prism through which to analyse migrant resistance, the article further explores how stateless migrants do not passively submit themselves to the outcome of penalising regimes, but struggle for a right of presence.</p> Helena Lindholm ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 17 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +1100 Sea Level Rise and Climate Statelessness <p>Several low-lying island states currently risk the loss of their entire territory before the end of the century. Combined with the inadequacy of the existing framework of international refugee law to address the challenges faced by those displaced, this situation has made the law on statelessness an interesting candidate for securing an alternative path to obtaining a legal status in a post-relocation context. However, while several authors have examined this possibility, the majority conclude that it fails in its putative task by providing too little, and by coming into play too late to be of any significant relevance to the situation of environmentally displaced persons in low-lying island states. This article challenges this narrative by re-examining the relevance of the law on statelessness along with the context within which it might have to play a role.</p> Michel Rouleau-Dick ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 17 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +1100 Tanah Tumpahnya Darahku <p>Article 14(1)(b) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia, when read together with sch II pt II s 1(e), theoretically acts as a safety net for Malaysian-born persons by conferring citizenship upon those who would otherwise be stateless. In practice, however, these provisions have been interpreted as imposing a dual jus soli/jus sanguinis requirement that must be satisfied before citizenship can be granted. Consequently, many persons prima facie entitled to Malaysian citizenship by operation of law are deprived of their entitlement. This article explores the possibility of adopting the Nottebohm (Liechtenstein v Guatemala) ‘genuine and effective link’ principle as a supplementary element of the s 1(e) citizenship test. Support for adoption is derived from the Parliament of Malaysia’s intent throughout the history of amendments to the citizenship provisions in the Constitution. The article further considers the plausibility of a direct legal transplantation of the principle into Malaysian law, drawing upon various sources including international law and English common law.</p> Tan Kian Leong ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 17 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +1100 'I Must Be from Somewhere. I'm Not from the Moon' <p>This article explores the relationship between statelessness and refugeeness over time and space. It does so by drawing on how Palestinian refugees from Syria in Sweden navigate the various stateless and refugee labels imposed upon them before, during and after their flight from Syria to Sweden. Standpoint theory was deployed as the basis for understanding how this group of stateless refugees related to these labels. While the research found that, even though the labelling process was largely non-participatory, both as a manifestation for epistemic agency and a vehicle for epistemic justice in statelessness and refugee research, standpoint theory has offered an indispensable lens through which we have accessed the multiple strategies that the interviewees adopted to accept, reject, resist or negotiate their re/de-labelling throughout their journey.</p> Jason Tucker, Haqqi Bahram ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 17 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +1100 Legal Identity and Minority Statelessness in Cambodia <p>N/A</p> Christoph Sperfeldt ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 17 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +1100 Statelessness and Contemporary Enslavement by Jane Anna Gordon <p>N/A</p> Yuriko Cowper-Smith ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 17 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +1100 Statelessness, Governance, and the Problem of Citizenship, Edited by Tendayi Bloom and Lindsey N Kingston <p>N/A</p> Marnie Lloydd ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 17 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +1100 Legal Identity, Race and Belonging in the Dominican Republic: From Citizen to Foreigner by Eve Hayes De Kalaf <p>N/A</p> Allison Petrozziello ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 17 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +1100
