Williams on Terrorism & Citizenship Revocation

Posted on 15/12/2015

Professor George Williams and Dr Cian Murphy

Professor George Williams AO, Foundation Director of the Gilbert and Tobin Centre for Public Law at the University of New South Wales, gave the first lecture in a new series at The Dickson Poon School of Law on 30 November.

Speaking about National Security and Law is a lecture series held under the auspices of the National Security Law Research & Policy Initiative with the support of the Transnational Law Institute.

Professor Williams’ lecture, under the title Countering Terrorism by Revoking Citizenship, was a timely and thought-provoking critique of new legal responses to terrorism in Australia and across the Commonwealth.

In the lecture Professor Williams set out the details of new legislation in Australia that may constitute the most powerful law on citizenship revocation in the world. After decades of Australian law drawing inspiration from the UK and elsewhere, we may now see those states turn to Australia for an example.

Professor Williams set out the potential pitfalls of such a law as we witness the relationship between the state and the individual being reshaped – in particular the rising risk of statelessness amongst those subject to such laws.

Further lectures in the series will take place in the Spring term. For more details about the lecture series, see the National Security Law Research & Policy Initiative webpage or contact the Initiative Director, Dr Cian Murphy.
