A major contemporary citizenship trend is the increasing tolerance of dual citizenship. Toleration of dual citizenship is a consequence of the general application of the principle of gender equality in citizenship matters, which generates dual citizenship for children of parents with different citizenship, and of a rethinking of citizens’ military duties and expectations in the context of Western Europe’s low security risks. However, 24 European countries continue to oblige naturalisation candidates to renounce any other citizenship in order to naturalise (see Figure 3).
