Abstract (Swedish)
Civic integration is something that states interpret differently in their formulation of citizenship requirements. Thinking of the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe, citizenship policy is an important issue because states will confront new residents who need to obtain a citizenship in order to start a new life and integrate in a foreign country. The aim of this study is to follow up with existing research submitted by Sara Wallace Goodman about obligatory civic integration and citizenship.

Civic integration is something that states interpret differently in their formulation of citizenship requirements. Thinking of the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe, citizenship policy is an important issue because states will confront new residents who need to obtain a citizenship in order to start a new life and integrate in a foreign country. The aim of this study is to follow up with existing research submitted by Sara Wallace Goodman about obligatory civic integration and citizenship. Testing her theory about political legacy behind the citizenship requirements, I will examine the development of citizenship requirements in Netherlands and Austria to be able to explain the different results from the citizenship policy making. According to Mipex, Migrant integration policy index, Austria has a more severe citizenship policy then Netherlands but both countries has implemented dense citizenship successively. I will look at two factors, the political climate and political pressure to change citizenship, to be able to answer why Netherlands and Austria have implemented more dense citizenship requirements during the past 15 years. From results in my examination one find that the political climate plays a crucial role for future policymaking. In Netherlands political pressure to change citizenship have objected to, and counteracted severe citizenship policy in negotiations. In Austria where there hardly has been any pressure against similar forces, the outcome from the policymaking has led to more dense citizenship requirements. (Less)
