Switzerland likely has the most particular naturalization system in the world. Whereas in most countries citizenship attribution is regulated at the central level of the state, in Switzerland each municipality is accorded the right to decide who can become a Swiss citizen. This book aims at exploring naturalization processes from a comparative perspective and to explain why some municipalities pursue more restrictive citizenship policies than others. The Swiss case provides a unique opportunity to approach citizenship politics from new perspectives. It allows us to go beyond formal citizenship

Focusing on citizenship means thinking about the relationships between individuals and the states in which they live. What difference does having citizenship rights mean for people's lives?

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Over the last decade or so, concern about illegal immigration has sporadically led to a re-examination of a long-established tenet of U.S. citizenship, codified in the Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), that a person who is born in the U.S., is a citizen of the U.S. regardless of the race, ethnicity, or alienage of the parents. Some congressional Members have supported a revision of the Citizenship Clause or at least holding hearings for a serious co

The result of five years of intensive research on citizenship in the Arab world, this volume uses the multidisciplinary approach of comparative legal studies in order to consider the multifaceted reality of nationality and citizenship. Gianluca P. Parolin brings together methodologies from fields as diverse as anthropology, linguistics, sociology, and political science, while exploring a broad range of Western and Arab references accessed in their original languages and sources, making in-text references and contemporary Arab legislation accessible for the general reader.
