Editorial Reviews


This collection will not only make valuable contributions to the policy making that improves the straitened environment of stateless children, but will also be of great interest to policy makers, human rights advocates and scholars of human rights and international relations.

(Political Studies Review)

Children Without a State is unique in combining scholarship on child rights with scholarship on immigration, citizenship, and statelessness. The book does an excellent job of moving from largely academic, theoretical, and legal frameworks to an examination of the situation on the ground.

(Susan F. Martin, Donald G. Hertzberg Chair in International Migration, and Director, Institute for the Study of International Migration, Georgetown University)

The essays in this book speak to an urgent issue that is sadly overlooked in scholarly and policy discourses about citizenship and immigration rights: the rights of children who are legally or effectively stateless. As dependent legal subjects, children are the most vulnerable amongst us and hence have the greatest need of state protection. The book's scope is impressive, with discussion of state practices and their consequences within industrialized and developing countries and under conditions of global, regional, and internal migrations.

(Mae M. Ngai, Professor of History and Lung Family Professor of Asian American Studies, Columbia University)

This is an important and timely volume that will add significantly to the existing literature on migration and citizenship law. Childhood marks a status of less-than-full membership that renders individuals vulnerable as a matter of law and social practice in relation to adults. This is the first book-length study that systematically analyzes the interface between national status vulnerability and childhood.

(Linda Bosniak, School of Law, Rutgers University, and author of The Citizen and the Alien: Dilemmas of Contemporary Membership)
