The Blackstone's Guide to the Borders, Citizenship, and Immigration Act 2009 is an essential tool for understanding the important changes to British nationality law, immigration law and border control found in the new Act. It provides a clear explanation of developments relating particularly to the acquisition of British citizenship by naturalisation and other means; the transfer of certain immigration judicial review applications from the High Court to the Upper Tribunal; the introduction of new immigration measures concerning students, children, detention, and the offence of trafficking people for exploitation; and the new customs functions of the UK Border Agency and related powers of inspection and oversight of their exercise. It also offers a concise commentary setting the new provisions in the context of existing laws, while explaining the significance of these innovations. It includes careful consideration of the constitutional significance of the new measures, together with an emphasis on the implications of the measures for the protection of rights under the ECHR
