Chapter Summary

This chapter serves the purpose of offering some comparative observations on each individual 'mode of acquisition' and 'mode of loss' of citizenship. The twenty-seven modes of acquisition and fifteen modes of loss have been developed by the European Union Democracy Observatory on Citizenship (EUDO) to provide an analytical grid that allows for the possibility to capture all possible ways of acquiring and losing citizenship in a country. Mode A01a is not particularly relevant in the American Hemisphere due to the prevalence of the ius soli principle over the ius sanguinis principle. This means that children born in the territory of a country acquire citizenship by that fact alone, that is, iure soli. That the child may be born in the territory to a citizen is irrelevant, and it does not mean that citizenship is acquired iure sanguinis.

Keywords: American Hemisphere; citizenship; European Union Democracy Observatory on Citizenship (EUDO); ius sanguinis principle; ius soli principle
