Dimitry Kochenov on Citizenship

“Most citizenships limit life prospects and hinder the realization of dreams, install ‘glass ceilings’,” Meduza quotes the book of Dimitry Kochenov, lead researcher of our Rule of Law working group.

The article introduces his book, Citizenship, and writes that “compared to ‘super citizenships’ such as Swiss, Norwegian, Irish or Luxembourgish, other passports (in fact, just over half of citizenships) are a set of problems, not opportunities for their holders.”

The article also mentions the Quality of Nationality Index, released by Kochenov and Christian Kalin, which assesses the attractiveness of citizenship on a long list of attributes, including the quality of human development, mobility and work in other countries, political stability, legal security.
