Series/Number: Migration Policy Centre; CARIM-India Research Report; 2013/26
This paper discusses the politically controversial topic of dual or multiple citizenship in the context of the relationships between India and Europe, and EU member States in particular. The paper first focuses on the attitude of the Indian legislator towards dual citizenship and pays particular attention to the development of a special status for Overseas Indians holding another citizenship. Thereafter it discusses the attitude of Member States of the European Union towards dual or multiple citizenship, and how this attitude has changed in the course of the years. Finally, the paper explores the changes that would occur if India would accept the possibility to possess dual citizenship c.q. if it would considerably increase the rights of Overseas Citizens of India.
