“Until now, the fast-growing literature on citizenship in Europe had largely neglected the recent accession countries. By extending the common framework of the NATAC study to the ‘new Europe’, this volume provides the first systematic comparison of these important cases, thus providing scholars and policymakers with a more complete and accurate picture of citizenship policies throughout the European Union.”-- Marc Morjé Howard, Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.
“This book keeps up the high standard of its preceding volumes – sticking to the same structure, which allows direct comparisons to be made, and presenting richly illustrated histories of the development of citizenship in each case. I know of no other comparable collection that combines this breadth
of coverage with the characteristic depth of analysis.”-- Mike Collyer, Sussex University, Brighton
This book provides a detailed and unique analysis of citizenship policies in the countries of the most recent wave of EU enlargement, plus Turkey. The contributors provide deep insights into the complex histories of nationality in these countries, and the challenges they now face in managing national and ethnic identity issues, at a time when EU membership has also required a new cross-border coordination of policies.
