Citizenship Case Law

In recent decades courts have become more actively involved in decisions about citizenship status and rights. EUDO CITIZENSHIP has created a database collecting some of the most important national, European and international court decisions. This is not intended to be a comprehensive database.

Cases selected meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • having a wider normative effect
  • interpreting key concepts of nationality law, such as affiliation, dual nationality, nationality by birth, statelessness, etc.
  • illustrating specific national concerns about certain groups or historical conditions
  • concerning the exercise of executive discretion
  • involving human rights claims
