Governing global migration is one of the most pressing issues of our time. With more than 250 million international immigrants, the question of how citizenship should be distributed has become a controversial issue, morally and politically. Traditionally, international law has not regulated nationality law; naturalization requirements remain the last stronghold of national sovereignty. This project advances the establishment of a new subfield in public international law "International Citizenship Law" (IC-LAW) - which would govern nationality law. It asks a critical and timely question: What are/should be the international legal standards for acquisition and loss of citizenship?

The project is structured around three core projects:

  1. Global Citizenship Compact
  2. Majority and Minority Rights
  3. Global Citizenship Technology (CitTech)
