Egyptians in the Era of Universal Nationality
For a dozen critical years, between 1914 (when Ottoman sovereignty over Egypt was extinguished) and 1926 (when Egypt’s first recognized nationality law was passed), the status of Egyptians under private international law was uncertain. This was a period during which passport controls proliferated, statelessness became an issue of international concern, and many kinds of foreignness (foreign and dual nationals, foreign capital, and the mutamassirun) were under pressure in Egypt itself. This chapter shows the means that Egyptians used to propagate nationalization programs during this period, and the support they gleaned from the gathering international consensus around nationality, which came to be considered (for the first time) a universal and natural human attribute.
