Project Directors: Professor Jo Shaw; Professor Rainer Bauböck

Since 2009, the British Academy has supported the CITMODES project <>  (Acquisition and Loss of Citizenship in and across Modern European States), which provided an initial platform for collecting online data and reports at a website hosted by the Europa Institute of the University of Edinburgh and which serves now to expand the EUDO CITIZENSHIP observatory ( to states in the EU neighbourhood and to support networking activities.


EUDO CITIZENSHIP builds on earlier and parallel projects analyzing citizenship laws and policies in EU-27 as well as in neighbouring countries of Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean.

>    to expand the comparison by adding new countries
