Recent years have seen an explosion of empirical and normative scholarly interest in citizenship across many disciplines. This course seeks to provide an overview of some of the main topical issues and scholarly perspectives in the social sciences, with special but not exclusive attention to citizenship in the law and politics of the states of Europe with a special focus on Eastern Europe.  In addition to the overview the evolution of citizenship regimes, the course will offer an in-depth analysis of different normative frameworks and also analyse their policy implications

Given the special circumstances of new state formation and state succession in large parts of Eastern Europe after 1989, special attention will be given to problems of membership, ethnic selectivity, migration, transnational and dual citizenship with their implications on the de- or re-ethnicization of citizenship.  These processes will be examined from comparative and normative perspectives within the larger European context that connects citizenship of the Member States of the EU through a common citizenship of the Union and its associated rights of free movement.

Several course faculty are members of the European Commission funded EUDO Citizenship project, a research network which focuses on the citizenship policies in the EU member states and Eastern and Southern borderlines (fSU, Turkey, fRY) of the Union. The research group offers the most comprehensive comparative analysis of European citizenship regimes. The summer course will concentrate on some specific issues that dominate the debate in the old and the new EU states and have to do with the potential re-ethnicization of citizenship through the instrument of non-resident dual citizenship for ethnic kins. It will also disseminate the recent and not yet published novel findings of the project (concluded in June, 2010). The faculty will draw intensively on the unique research materials of the project such as citizenship statistics, comparative database on modes of acquisition and loss of citizenship in the European Union member states, collection of laws related to external citizenship, compilation of citizenship related international norms, EU citizenship case law, available online at http://eudo-citizenship.eu/ .

Journaliste et voyageur, je suis un Européen d'origine française et observateur insatiable de la composition, décomposition et recomposition du continent. Depuis 2011 en Ukraine, je suis en permanence sur les routes, afin de suivre les évolutions et révolutions qui secouent ce pays. L'occasion d'affiner mon regard sur les différences - et ressemblances - qui font cette autre Europe.
