In this chapter, the revocation of citizenship laws in three democratic countries - Canada, Israel, and the United States - are compared. At first glance, it appears that in each of the countries, there is one common factor that provides the pretext for expatriation - the particular conception of citizenship and nationhood (usually highlighted and constructed during military conflicts). This explanation accords with the existing literature on citizenship. This chapter shows that there is another principle that all countries share that plays a role in the perception of citizenship and its revocation. Forced expatriation as a policy became more widespread with the institutionalization of the national world order which does not tolerate multiple national allegiances.
