The access to Italian citizenship: A critical reading. After outlining some critical issues in the current debate about citizenship, this essay focuses on the rules governing the acquisition of citizenship status in Italy, with particular reference to access by birthright of children born to foreign parents and naturalization. The essay proposes a critical reading of the legislation. The ius sanguinis criterion, the requirement of integration – presumed in some cases, to be ascertained in others –, the male and working foreigner subject on which such law is based – which leaves women and minors on the margins –, confirm the selective and excluding nature of the legislation and prove the convergence of objectives between citizenship and immigration legislation.

Abstract

The access to Italian citizenship: A critical reading. After outlining some critical issues in the current debate about citizenship, this essay focuses on the rules governing the acquisition of citizenship status in Italy, with particular reference to access by birthright of children born to foreign parents and naturalization. The essay proposes a critical reading of the legislation. The ius sanguinis criterion, the requirement of integration – presumed in some cases, to be ascertained in others –, the male and working foreigner subject on which such law is based – which leaves women and minors on the margins –, confirm the selective and excluding nature of the legislation and prove the convergence of objectives between citizenship and immigration legislation.
