The Politics of Citizenship in Europe

The Politics of Citizenship in Europe

Bela Hovy of Migration Section, United Nations Population Division, reviews The Politics of Citizenship in Europe. The book uses case studies, quantitative analysis, historical perspectives, and contemporary political investigation to analyze the evolution of citizenship policies in the member countries of the EU. The book examines why some countries have had more liberal citizenship policies historically as well as why citizenship policies have liberalized in some countries while remaining restrictive in others.
