Access to Citizenship in the Global South: How Important Is It and How Could It Be Made More Inclusive?

Dates:
  • Tue 01 Dec 2020 18.00 - 19.30
  Add to Calendar 2020-12-01 18:00 2020-12-01 19:30 Europe/Paris Access to Citizenship in the Global South: How Important Is It and How Could It Be Made More Inclusive?

Throughout countries of the so-called global South, rates of naturalisation are low – even where there are large populations of immigrants. And outside South America only few countries automatically include second generations of immigrant origin through ius soli rules. GLOBALCIT has just concluded its 15th GLOBALCIT Forum in which 15 authors discussed a proposal by Bronwen Manby to unblock access to citizenship by empowering local communities to naturalise foreigners. We want to build on the insights from this debate in a webinar that looks into the broader question of how important access to citizenship is in the global South compared to other legal statuses and documents, such as birth certificates or permanent residence permits. The webinar will also ask what is the best strategy for closing citizenship gaps and how strongly success depends on national contexts. 

To receive the ZOOM link to attend the webinar please REGISTER ONLINE by 30 November.
