    This paper addresses the process of politicization of nationality and citizenship in contemporary Europe. By elucidating the legal aspects of citizenship and nationality in domestic law and of identification through citizenship in international law, I will argue that the introduction of European Citizenship can be interpreted as a great achievement or “invitation” to political turmoil in the EU. The paper will further analyze the impact of the EU citizenship in a third state and the residence/citizenship nexus.
