Migration and Citizenship 1.Auflage, 2021

International migration is leading to an increasing mismatch between the resident population and the national population. More and more citizens live outside the country’s borders and a growing part of the resident population consists of non-citizens. The extent of these discrepancies depends not only on migration patterns but also on the rules governing the acquisition and loss of citizenship. This book examines the relationship between migration, citizenship, and voting rights from legal, historical, social science, and democratic theory perspectives. The individual chapters deal with the acquisition of citizenship at birth and through naturalization, loss through renunciation or state revocation, the state’s handling of multiple citizenship, and the extension of voting rights to non-citizens. The focus is on the Austrian situation in an international comparison. It is shown that Austria lags far behind other immigration states in opening up citizenship to immigrants, accepting dual citizenship and extending voting rights. The authors argue that access to citizenship and the acceptance of dual citizenship are not only crucial for the integration of immigrants, but also for the legitimacy of democratic institutions in Austria as a country of immigration.
