Over the past few decades, many European countries have revised their citizenship laws, typically in the direction of greater liberalization. What explains why certain countries have liberalized their citizenship policies, whereas others have not? This chapter presents a model that focuses on the politics of citizenship, exploring not only whether parties of the Left or the Right are in power but also the extent to which citizenship becomes a contentious and politicized issue—usually pushed by the Far Right, which exploits the latent anti-immigrant sentiments of the population—that receives wider public debate and mobilization. Even outside of the realm of electoral politics, the model suggests that the mobilization of anti-immigrant sentiment can influence the politics of citizenship, particularly in the form of referenda and petition campaigns.
