Citizenship: a privilege or a right?

During the course of this three part unit, students explore what it means to be a UK citizen.

Overview

Students research what the law says about the rights of individuals to become UK citizens and critically examine whether there are any circumstances where it is legally or ethically appropriate to revoke a person’s citizenship and what the impact of this might be.

Finally, using the case of Shamima Begum, students critically consider the various roles of politicians and the courts in the decision-making process.
