Withdrawing nationality as a measure to combat terrorism: a human rights-compatible approach?

Amendment No. 1 | Doc. 14790 | 24 January 2019

Mr Mart van de VEN, Netherlands, ALDE ; Mr Olivier BECHT, France, ALDE ; Ms Reina de BRUIJN-WEZEMAN, Netherlands, ALDE ; Mr Hendrik DAEMS, Belgium, ALDE ; Ms Gyde JENSEN, Germany, ALDE ; Mr Konstantin KUHLE, Germany, ALDE ; Mr Vincent VAN QUICKENBORNE, Belgium, ALDE
2019 - First part-session

In the draft resolution, paragraph 6, after the words "First, it may", insert the word "not".

Explanatory note

The amendment clarifies that the report of Ms Strik deals with individuals having one or more nationalities. The current wording that the application of laws on withdrawal of nationality may lead to statelessness, is negative in nature. Adding the word "not" in this sentence confirms that having one nationality is the absolute bare minimum within the context of the resolution.
