Global inequality as a result of citizenship commodification
Citizenship by investment (CBI) systems that legally grant individuals second citizenship in exchange for an investment made in the host country have proliferated in the EU. The result has been the commodification of citizenship and a rising citizenship industry. However, the new system is having a serious impact on citizenship, migration and social inequality. Nevertheless, the CBI phenomenon has attracted insufficient scientific attention and the rising of the citizenship industry remains unexplored. The EU-funded CitIndus project will investigate new ways the global citizenship market emerged and examine its role in the proliferation of CBI, in the formation of new migration systems and in the creation of corporate political power. Understanding the citizenship industry will reveal the role of commodification in increasing inequality.
