The Citizenship Regimes of Swiss Cantons: Between
Historical Inertia, Politicization and Postnational Change
This research examines the developments of
cantonal citizenship regimes in Switzerland from a historical
perspective. Besides shedding light on the broad diversity
in regards to naturalization and integration laws within the
confederation, it aims at explaining why they have persisted
to this date. It will do so by conducting a systematic
comparative analysis of the Zurich, Ticino and Jura cases.
The dissertation also interrogates the relationship between
federalism and immigration and their link to nation-building
processes in the Swiss multilevel context.
