Globalcit Dialogue - Attachment and Belonging: Assessing the Borders and Boundaries of Citizenship

Dates:
  • Thu 19 Apr 2018 15.30 - 19.00
  Add to Calendar 2018-04-19 15:30 2018-04-19 19:00 Europe/Paris Globalcit Dialogue - Attachment and Belonging: Assessing the Borders and Boundaries of Citizenship

The Dialogue is organised in two parts: a roundtable and a lecture. The Roundtable with Liav Orgad | European University Institute Alexander Aleinikoff | The New School Jelena Dzankic | European University Institute Hiroshi Motomura | UCLA School of Law Rainer Bauboeck | European University Institute Lecture with Hiroshi Motomura | UCLA School of Law The roundtable addresses fundamental dilemmas relating to membership and belonging, genuine ties and instrumental citizenship. In 1955, the International Court of Justice ruled that citizenship requires a genuine link between a state and a citizen— a legal bond having as its basis a social fact of attachment, a genuine connection of existence, interests and sentiments. More than 60 years have passed, is the genuine link doctrine still a good law for assessing membership, or has it become anachronistic? Is it compatible with the growing recognition on dual citizenship (based on a genuine link to several, rather than one state), birthright citizenship (not based on a prior genuine link), and European citizenship (in which a genuine link to the Union is established through a genuine link to a Member State under its criteria)? What is the meaning of a genuine link in a globalized world? And when (if at all) can links become substantial enough to create a right to citizenship?   The Globalcit lecture explores why challenges to U.S. migration laws and policies often take national belonging as their foundation, and why this approach is both essential and yet limited as a path to ethical borders. The lecture’s focus is on the United States, but the key lessons have much broader application.
