Best practices on involuntary loss of nationality in the EU
Title: Best practices on involuntary loss of nationality in the EU
Series/Number: CEPS Paper in Liberty and Security in Europe; 2014/73
This policy brief deals with loss of citizenship of the European Union (EU) due to the loss of nationality of a Member State. To hold nationality of an EU Member State is the master key to European citizenship. Only the nationals of a Member State possess European citizenship. Consequently, the loss of nationality of a Member State also implies the loss of European citizenship. Due to the fact that Member States are in principle autonomous in nationality matters, their rules on loss of nationality, and implicitly loss of the citizenship of the European Union, differ considerably. However, Member States have to respect international law and general principles of European law when dealing with loss of nationality.
