Investor Citizenship: a Challenge for Citizenship or a Sign of Its Transformation?

January 26, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm Europe/Rome Timezone
Valentina Bettin

Investor citizenship programmes have sparked much controversy over the last decade, not the least due to corruption and scandals that surrounded the sale of passports around the world, but also because they challenge our understanding of who is and should be recognised as a citizen. Reflecting a combination of different disciplinary approaches and policy insights, this webinar gathers six scholars in roundtable discussions on the opportunities and challenges of investor citizenship in a globalising world. The webinar is divided into two parts: it first addresses investor citizenship in the context of the much-debated notion of ‘genuine link’ and then explores the benefits and drawbacks of the sale of passports for different stakeholders, and from different perspectives.

To receive the ZOOM link to attend the webinar please REGISTER ONLINE by 25 January.
