Citizenship and residence by investment is a fast-growing global phenomenon. As of 2022, more than a third of all countries in the world offered such immigration path. Yet we know little about how such investment programs operate and debates in academia and the wider public are often misinformed by sensationalist cases.
Citizenship and Residence Sales (Cambridge, 2023) offers a multidisciplinary exploration of both citizenship and residence by investment on a global scale with an emphasis on the role of international law as well as EU law in the possible regulation of this phenomenon. The volume demystifies citizenship and residence by investment and takes a critical postcolonial global perspective, addressing key issues in belonging, exclusion, and inequality that define the world today. Join us for a panel discussion that will explore these topics and more, followed by a reception.
