Dual Citizenship in a Globalized World: The Case of Israel & the EU
Over the past two decades, a new and provocative trend emerged in Israel: tens of thousands of Israelis are applying to acquire citizenship from the European countries whose parents and grandparents had left as refugees. Most citizenship applicants do not plan to “return” to Germany or Poland, but rather are interested in securing a second, European Union passport that they view as an insurance policy, enhancer of opportunities and even status symbol.
Drawing on administrative statistics and interview material, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Tel-Aviv University Yossi Harpaz will analyze the proliferation of EU dual citizenship in Israel in the context of social and ideological changes in Israeli society, while connecting it to a broader worldwide shift in the meaning of citizenship.
