The Convention on Certain Questions Relating to the Conflict of Nationality Laws was a League of Nations convention adopted during the League of Nations Codification Conference, 1930 in The Hague. It was ratified by only twenty nations.[1]

General principles[edit]

The first article states that it is up to every state to set its own nationality laws, but that that power is limited:-[2]

Article 1. It is for each State to determine under its own law who are its nationals. This law shall be recognised by other States in so far as it is consistent with international conventions, international custom, and the principles of law generally recognised with regard to nationality.
