EU Commission registers the initiative ‘EU Citizenship for Europeans: United in Diversity in Spite of jus soli and jus sanguinis’

On 27 March 2017, the European Commission has registered the initiative “EU Citizenship for Europeans: United in Diversity in Spite of jus soli and jus sanguinis”. The initiative has the objective of proposing EU legislation that would “ensure that, following the withdrawal of a Member State in accordance with Article 50 TEU, the citizens of that country can continue to benefit from similar rights to those which they enjoyed whilst that country was a Member State”.
