For a number of years, consecutive Secretaries of State for the Home Department have increasingly used their powers to deprive individuals of their British citizenship. The use of those powers was recently brought to the public’s attention through the widespread publicity of the case of Shamima Begum and the political debate arising out of section 10 of the Nationality and Borders Act 2022, which provides the power to deprive without notice.

With the continued growth of decisions to deprive individuals of their British citizenship, the acquisition of British citizenship is no longer the conclusive end to people’s immigration journey that it once was. The need to successfully challenge decisions is therefore becoming increasingly commonplace for practitioners. This book examines the evolving area of deprivation of British citizenship, exploring the ways and process by which an individual could lose their British citizenship, as well as the consequences for them, and potentially their family. It also covers the available options and approaches to challenging decisions in light of a number of recent and important judgements.
