2018 GLOBALCIT Annual Conference: Rights and Status. The Role of Citizenship in Immigrant Integration and Diaspora Building
Organisers : Rainer Bauböck | European University Institute, Jelena Dzankic | European University Institute, Jo Shaw | University of Edinburgh and Maarten P. Vink | Maastricht University
Migrants frequently enjoy rights both in their relations to their countries of residence and of origin. How do these rights impact on the conditions under which they can change their citizenship status and on their motivation to do so? Are the rights of non-citizen residents a substitute or citizenship status or pathways to naturalisation? How do the rights of non-resident citizens relate to the ease of acquisition and the limits for retaining citizenship abroad? Papers will study migrants’ rights and how statuses are connected both in contexts of immigration and emigration and for individual migrants as well as from the perspective of states.
The conference is supported by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020) and it is co-financed by the Migrant Life Course and Legal Status Transitions (MiLifeStatus) project, which has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 682626). Migration and Transnational Social Protection in (post) crisis Europe (MiTSoPro) project supports the participation of presenters from the University of Liege (ERC grant agreement No 680014).
