Abstract

In At Home in Two Countries, Peter Spiro addresses one of the most challenging issues related to the institution of citizenship: the question whether dual citizenship should be protected by international law and perhaps even qualify as a “human right.” The book indicates how arbitrary citizenship rules are and stimulates a debate on the future of citizenship. Spiro invites us to think of the essence of citizenship and how the world could be different if alternative rules would be adopted. He offers a timely analysis of a pressing global challenge.
