EU citizenship by investment

Since the mid-twentieth century, the right to citizenship has been a cornerstone of international law. In recent years, however, some countries have devised new methods for obtaining citizenship, raising concerns about who is eligible for protection and benefits under the law. One such method is the purchase of EU citizenship by investment. This controversial practice allows wealthy individuals to bypass traditional requirements for gaining citizenship, such as residency or naturalization. While proponents argue that this program attracts valuable investment and creates jobs, critics maintain that it undermines national sovereignty and invites corruption. As the debate over EU citizenship by investment continues, it is important to consider the implications for both individual investors and host countries.
