Naturalisation: A Passport for the Better Integration of Immigrants?

This conference proceedings provides the papers presented at the OECD/European Commission joint seminar on Naturalisation and the Socio-Economic Integration of Immigrants and their Children held in October 2010 in Brussels. It takes stock of the current knowledge  regarding the links between host-country nationality and socio-economic integration of immigrants and their children, building on novel evidence on this issue.  It also discusses the role of naturalisation as a tool in the overall framework for immigration and integration policy, with the aim of identifying good practices.

This chapter summarises the findings of a recent study on integration measures and/or requirements imposed on non-EU nationals in member countries of the European Union. The main focus is on rules in national legislation that require non-EU nationals to demonstrate knowledge of the host-country language and/or knowledge about the host society, including its history, institutions or values.
