Yasuhiro Okuda, Trevor O RYAN

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The first section of this article will analyze Japanese law. The second section describes the Australian law of nationality and public office, arguing that reform is needed to relax the current restrictions on dual nationality for political candidates. Finally, we conclude with some brief observations that emerge from the
juxtaposition of these two seemingly disparate jurisdictions.
