Â Citizenship is the pivotal legal status in any nation-state. In Australia, the democratic, social and political framework, and its identity as a nation, is shaped by the notion of citizenship. Australian Citizenship Law sheds light on citizenship law and practice Â and provides the most up-to-date analysis available of the Australian Citizenship Act 2007. Rubensteinâ€™s Australian Citizenship Law is the much-awaited second edition to her highly acclaimed text, cited in High Court decisions, referred to in national and international academic work and used extensively by practitioners working in the area. The book is essential for legal practitioners working in citizenship law, migration law, constitutional and administrative law and, is an essential resource for migration agents. Moreover, because of its broader analysis, it is crucially relevant to any discipline associated with citizenship, including, history, politics, education or sociology, and to government officials working in the area of citizenship, Australian embassy and consular staff in particular.
