A main goal of the EUDO CITIZENSHIP observatory is to encourage academic research in all disciplines that have an interest in citizenship. We hope that the analyses and data provided on our website will stimulate new research questions and allow for testing interesting hypotheses. Browsing our website, PhD students and early career researchers in particular may discover new topics and the data they need to analyse them.
Our working paper series aims specifically at publishing fresh research on citizenship statuses, the attached legal rights and duties and the rules for acquiring and losing citizenship. We hope to contribute in this way with our specific focus to the broader field of citizenship studies.
EUDO CITIZENSHIP publishes two kinds of working papers:
(1) previously unpublished manuscripts on topics of citizenship laws and policies and
(2) collections of edited contributions to EUDO CITIZENSHIP Forum Debates
Working papers submitted to EUDO CITIZENSHIP will be peer reviewed and selected for publication according to their academic quality and their fit with the specific thematic focus of our observatory.
EUDO CITIZENSHIP working papers are published online on this webpage and in the RSCAS Series of the European University Institute.
Submission of working papers:
If you would like to publish an essay as a working paper, you can either send the full text or a short abstract or paper proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Online Form. We will respond to paper proposals by indicating whether the topic fits our series. After the full text of a paper has been submitted, the editors of the working paper series will decide whether to accept the paper for review. Peer reviews will then be commissioned from EUDO CITIZENSHIP or experts or scholars outside our network.
