In this paper we study the evolution of citizenship laws around the world. Our analysis is based on a dataset we compiled to document such evolution in 162 countries in the 1948-2001 period. Our econometric results can be summarized as follows. The legal tradition, as represented by the application of jus soli rather than jus sanguinis, still exerts a persistent impact on current laws. Pressure from immigration tends to limit the application of jus soli. Among those factors that determine a more inclusive attitude we find instead the degree of democracy and demographic stagnation.
