Identity and Citizenship: The Case of Italy Within Europe

Jacopo Noventa

Abstract


International relationships and migratory movements, particularly towards European countries, have a crucial importance in the process leading to the formation of society. The intensification of the former and the escalation of the latter have been playing a fundamental role in the course that led to the creaking of the long standing idea of nation-state and the consequent weakening of social cohesion. The change of the migratory configuration that characterized the past few decades, with the increasing number of undocumented migrants and refugees fleeing from areas of conflicts, led European countries to the necessity of enacting new systems and processes for granting political, economic, and civil rights to people involved in migratory movements.
