Working paper: Brexit, nationality and union citizenship : bottom up

GLOBALCIT is pleased to announce the publication of the Working paper Brexit, nationality and union citizenship : bottom up by Hans Ulrich Jessurun d’Olivera.

The paper examines the reactions of Union citizens to the imminent Brexit and the uncertainty the unfinished negotiations bring. UK citizens seek to acquire the nationality of EU27 Member States, while EU27 citizens, residing in the UK, try to bolster up their position by acquiring UK citizenship. Key element in these activities securing freedom of movement is the acceptance of dual citizenship in the legislations concerned. Various avenues and legal barriers are explored and data about numbers of naturalisations and options are tentatively given.

This Working Paper is accessible through the EUI’s repository CADMUS.
