On 10 May 2019 the Bingham Centre hosted an expert roundtable on controversial powers to revoke a person's citizenship on national security grounds. The roundtable was convened by Dr Lawrence McNamara (Bingham Centre & York Law School) and Dr Jessie Blackbourn (Oxford). It was held to assist the work of the Australian Independent National Security Legislation Monitor, Dr James Renwick SC, who was conducting a review of citizenship revocation provisions in that country.

Experts from academia, the legal profession and civil society looked at how the UK laws and experience might inform the Australian review, considering matters such as the necessity, effectiveness and the proportionality of the laws, international obligations, procedural fairness, safeguards and scrutiny.
