(p.62) 2 Citizenship Reconfigured
The Scramble for Citizens
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on policies and organizational efforts to foster and maintain citizenship since World War II. It examines the reversal in political and economic fortunes that motivates the descendants of past European immigrants in Argentina to claim the nationality of their ancestors and shows how former emigration countries like Italy and Spain revive dormant policies and institute new ones in line with prevailing political and economic conditions and their geopolitical standing. Former immigration countries like Argentina devise new policies to maintain links to their citizens abroad. The discussion also describes how the paper trail left by past encounters between states and migrants makes these claims possible.

Keywords:   World War II, geopolitical standing, citizenship, European immigrants
