Report on Citizenship Law: Mexico

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

The present text analyses the development and core ideological nations that guide nationality/citizenship laws in Mexico. It argues that some aspects of the 'Revolutionary Nationalism' doctrine still shapes laws and policies in this area, for instance, regarding the ethno-cultural composition of the Mexican nation, or the defensive stance against any type of foreign intervention. This has direct consequences, for instance, in laws and policies regarding naturalization. What is more, it has created a system of 'categories of citizenship', with different rights attached to each one – so naturalized Mexicans, as well as Mexicans with dual citizenship, face an open, legally-sanctioned discrimination in their political and labour rights. Further instances of inequalities, as well as current political debates, are also examined.
