French Citizenship

Recommended Posts

It seems that the French government is reconsidering its definition of citizenship. Ever since the 18th century people anybody born in France could claim citizenship, no matter the nationality of their parents. In the early 1990s the French government changed the law and insisted one of the parents had to be French. It is now proposed that both parents have to be French. The Socialist and Green parties are both against this proposal claiming that this law was “an integral part of the republic”.
