Legal Developments in Investment Migration

Reflecting on research conducted by Chetcuti Cauchi in international legal precedent concerning the principle of effective nationality in ICJ and ECJ jurisprudence, Dr Jean-Philippe Chetcuti opined: 

"Investor migrants should seek to align their personal, business, and professional lifestyles to engage with their chosen destination to ensure adherence with the effective nationality principle in international law. Investor citizenship and residence status are most tested in times of significant geopolitical events."
