This half-day workshop will discuss the legal and organizational dimensions of the dual citizenship trend.

Over the past decades, states around the world increasingly employ formal state offices dedicated to emigrants and their descendants. Citizens residing abroad are more likely nowadays to have the right to vote in national elections in the homeland, often represented through special electoral constituencies representing emigrant voters. Recognizing that expatriate citizens can have genuine economic, political and social ties both with their country of residence, as well as their country of origin, dual citizenship acceptance has proliferated globally. In this half-day workshop, we discuss the legal and organizational dimensions of this global trend. What is the extent of the global trend in the rise of diaspora institutions? Are changes in rights on paper also reflected in changes in practice? What drives this trend politically? And, finally, what are the implications of, especially, dual citizenship acceptance for immigrant naturalization rates and global migration flows?
