International Citizenship Law
Governing global migration is one of the most pressing issues of our time. With more than 250 million international immigrants, the question of how citizenship should be distributed has become a controversial issue, morally and politically. Traditionally, international law has not regulated nationality law; naturalization requirements remain the last stronghold of national sovereignty. This project advances the establishment of a new subfield in public international law "International Citizenship Law" (IC-LAW) - which would govern nationality law. It asks a critical and timely question: What are/should be the international legal standards for acquisition and loss of citizenship?
The project is structured around three core projects:
- Global Citizenship Compact
- Majority and Minority Rights
- Global Citizenship Technology (CitTech)
