In Ius Doni in International Law and EU Law, Dr. Christian H. Kälin establishes the concept of ius doni in the contemporary legal and political theorizing of citizenship. Providing a comprehensive analysis of the subject, it discusses the legal and political concepts of citizenship. It also introduces a new term for what is already an increasingly common and accepted practice of granting citizenship on the basis of substantial contributions to the State. Consisting of two main parts — law and practice — the monograph analyses the ius doni concept in both international law and EU law, further tests its application in practice, and establishes best practices among states. Finally, the book discusses the conceptual and practical implications for citizenship.

Global Residence and Citizenship Programs 2018–2019 provides the most comprehensive, systematic analysis and benchmarking of the world’s leading residence- and citizenship-by-investment programs.

A distinguished panel of independent experts — immigration and citizenship lawyers, economists, country risk experts, academic researchers and other specialists — have created the Global Residence Program Index and the Global Citizenship Program Index as part of the report. These two indexes have become the global standard to gauge and reflect the relative worth of residence and citizenship programs around the world, analyzing a broad range of factors to produce an overall global view and ranking of the different investment migration programs on offer. These indexes are highly relevant to all those interested in alternative residence or citizenship options, but also industry professionals, private client advisors and others with an interest in the subject, as well as governments.

The report includes analysis of factors such as immigration law, tax, quality of living, as well as transparency, risk and compliance issues, and conveys scores and ranks using clear infographics and figures, complemented with concise explanation.

Updated with new expert commentary and navigational features, the Global Residence and Citizenship Programs 2018–2019 is an invaluable tool for anyone interested in investment migration.

The Henley & Partners – Kochenov Quality of Nationality Index (QNI) provides a comprehensive ranking of the quality of nationalities worldwide. To ensure a high level of reliability, a wide variety of strictly quantifiable data is used to gauge the opportunities and limitations that our nationalities impose on us. For that purpose, the QNI measures both the internal value of nationality, which refers to the quality of life and opportunities for personal growth within our country of origin, and the external value of nationality, which identifies the diversity and quality of opportunities that our nationality allows us to pursue outside our country of origin.

Updated with the latest data and edited by Prof. Kochenov and Justin Lindeboom, the third edition gives a global dynamic overview of the quality of all the nationalities in the world, providing a sketch of contemporary trends in citizenship and migration regulation worldwide.

We are in the midst of a global trend: the transformation of citizenship. This includes the acceptance of dual citizenship and the advent of ius doni, which provides the possibility of alternative citizenship by making an investment. At the same time, it creates social and economic development opportunities for States.

This study introduces the concept of ius doni into the contemporary legal and political theorizing of citizenship. Providing the first comprehensive analysis of the subject, it discusses the historical, legal, and political concepts of citizenship. It also introduces a new term for what is already an increasingly common and accepted practice of granting citizenship on the basis of substantial contributions to the State.
