Nationality and citizenship have recently become a hotly contested policy field in several European states. Reforms of the acquisition or loss of nationality have been shaped by concerns about the integration of immigrants as well as by attempts to strengthen ties with emigrants. A team of 30 researchers has examined nationality laws and their implementation in the pre-2004 Member States of the European Union. "http://www.aup.nl/do.php?a=show_visitor_book&isbn=9789053569214&l=2"> Volume 2 of this study presents detailed studies of each country's nationality laws, their historical background and current provisions. It is a companion to "http://www.aup.nl/do.php?a=show_visitor_book&isbn=9789053569207&l=2">volume 1 which contains comparative analyses based on a novel methodology that permits a detailed comparison how nationality can be acquired or lost across all 15 countries. The results show divergent trends towards liberalization in some countries and new restrictions of access to nationality in others. "http://www.aup.nl/do.php?a=show_visitor_book&isbn=9789053569207&l=2">Volume 1 also examines the impact of international and European law, presents statistical data on naturalisation and assesses administrative practices. Although the European Union has no formal competence in regulating nationality, the nationality laws of member states are linked to each other via the common citizenship of the Union. Member States should therefore agree on common norms for their nationality laws. Volume 1 contains detailed policy recommendations based on the idea that stakeholders in the political community should be given access to nationality. In addition to the two volumes, detailed statistics and further comparative analyses of legal regulations of nationality are available at "http://www.imiscoe.org">www.imiscoe.org. Both volumes are seperately available as well.
