Preface
The genesis of this volume occurred at a workshop on immigrant citizenship acquisition held in 2004 in Malmo, Sweden under the framework of the Willy Brandt Professorship. This inter-disciplinary workshop ultimately reflected a deep rift between economists and other social scientists, which in turn led to this economically focused analysis. We are both grateful to the workshop participants and Malmo University for supporting this initial effort and shedding light on future research. As scholarly and public interest grew over citizenship issues in North America and Europe, both the Metropolis Project (Vancouver) and the Volkswagen Foundation (IZA) provided funds to support the research for this book. The overarching aim of the editors was to see if economic modeling could provide a general framework to explore the conditioners to immigrant citizenship ascension in both worlds. To the extent that we have succeeded in this task, a large measure of thanks goes to the individual country authors who sought out unique data sets, wrestled with understanding varying concepts of citizenship, and had the patience to employ and test the economic model offered in this book. Moreover we would like to thank all anonymous reviewers who read and commented on the initial manuscripts. We also offer many thanks to all authors for the country-specific narratives on citizenship issues preceding each chapter. Last but not least we thank Dr. Diane Coulombe for her careful copyediting and her help in keeping this project moving forward.
