Partly also to see if and how the countries differences still betray a legacy of their traditional citizenship models jus soli (Latin for birthright) and jus sanguinis (Latin for bloodright). Two citizenship models created in the era of the national state. A discussion about new forms of citizenship in the era of globalization also takes place. Can we see traces of this development in France and Germany by looking at their immigration and citizenship policies? (Less)
