International refugee law anticipates state conduct in relation to nationality, statelessness, and protection. Refugee status 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.
