Citizenship as a concept makes us think about certain national identity, about emotions caused by belonging to this one identity. It also makes us think about civil and political engagement and rights. On the other hand, citizenship is a concept that divides society into those who have it and those who don’t have it. One of the most recent studies of the European Migration Network (EMN) “Pathways to citizenship for third-country nationals in EU Member States” provides a comparative overview of the existing schemes framing access to national citizenship for third-country nationals across the Member States of the European Union (EU).
The choice of the conference topic stems not only from the study carried out by the EMN but also from the national debates and legislative changes in Luxembourg over the last few years, especially the new Luxembourgish nationality law of 8 March 2017.
