Description

In the post-globalization world, many countries conceive special citizenship policies for emigrants and their descendants, their so called diaspora. Migration, Citizenship, and Development examines the effects of countryof- origin citizenship on the Indian diaspora in the United States and return migrants in India. Using an interdisciplinary approach, it combines political concepts of state power and governance, sociological categorizations of behaviour and identity, and economic scholarship on remittances and development. This book explores how a legal status shapes national belonging and how citizenship policies in the country of origin influence naturalization and attachment to the country of residence. Naujoks analyses the effects of country-oforigin citizenship on diasporic actions, such as remittances, investment, philanthropy, political lobbying, and return migration. The book will be of considerable interest to scholars and students of migration and development, political economy, sociology of law, immigrant integration, South Asian studies, and transnational studies. The work will also engage policymakers and journalists by throwing light on the complex interplay between individual and collective actions and the role of state policies and law.
