CITMODES is a British Academy Research Project that aims to provide a useful resource on citizenship acquisition and loss in Europe for governments, researchers, migrant organisations and NGOs. The British Academy has pledged its continued support under the Academy Research Projects Programme for the period of 2012 – 2017.
CITMODES operates under the aegis of the Europa Institute at the University of Edinburgh and the European Democracy Observatory (EUDO) at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS), European University Institute, Florence.
The CITMODES project provides significant infrastructural support to the EUDO Citizenship Observatory within which it is nested. All current and on-going research supported by the CITMODES project is available at that site. This site provides a repository for archived data, presenting a historical snapshot of data on citizenship acquisition and loss in Europe and allowing for longitudinal analyses across points in time.
The data housed on this site presents data and comparative analysis compiled in two previous projects: the NATAC project (Acquisition and Loss of Nationality in the EU-15 states), funded by the European Commission’s 6th Framework Programme, and the CPNEU project (Citizenship Policies in the New Europe), which generated analysis of citizenship policies in the EU-10 accession states of 2004 plus Turkey and was carried out within the IMISCOE Network of Excellence on International Migration, Integration and Social Cohesion in Europe. The data collected from these projects has further been supplemented by research commissioned under the CITMODES project within these time periods, and supported by the British Academy and other funders.
From 2009-2010, the EUDO Citizenship Observatory received funding under the INTI programme of the Directorate General for Freedom, Security and Justice of the European Commission, and for the period 2011-2013 it received further funding from the European Fund for the Integration of Third-country Nationals, now housed in DG Home of the European Commission. This is for the ACIT project on Access to citizenship and its impact on immigrant integration. The EUDO Citizenship Observatory has also received funding in 2012-2013 from the Committee on Constitutional Affairs of the European Parliament for a project on Electoral rights and participation of third-country nationals in EU member states and of EU citizens in third countries (FRACIT).
