Title:The denationalization of Black South Africans in pursuance of apartheid: a question for the International Court of Justice?
Author:Dugard, J.ISNI
Periodical:The Review - International Commission of Jurists
Geographic term:South Africa
Abstract:Things are changing in South Africa. Discrimination on grounds of race is giving way to discrimination on grounds of nationality as millions of black South Africans are deprived of their South African nationality by legislative fiat and allocated, in its place, the nationality of some unrecognized mini-State carved out of the body of South Africa. South Africa's courts are closed to the argument that the new policy of nationality-based discrimination is contrary to contemporary international law. Only the International Court of Justice may make this judgment. This question is examined here. After considering previous attempts and efforts to promote peace in Southern Africa by means of the International Court of Justice, South Africa's denationalization laws and the question whether they may be adjudicated upon form the subject of this study.
