Ensuring portability and comprehensive coverage alongside a holistic, inclusive citizenship that cares about and for people and the environment could pose financial challenges for nation-states and international bodies to resolve. Defining Citizenship Citizenship has been defined as a universal status that accords individuals human, civic, political social and welfare rights (Marshal, 1950). Citizenship is rooted in birth or legitimate residence within a particular nation-state and excludes by definition those not ‘belonging’ to it, making citizenship contingent on territory.

Supra-national developments have transcended the implications of citizenship rights rooted in the nation-state by initiating agreements to accord these to a range of people living within a region composed of diverse nation-states rather than one specific country. For example, the European Union (EU) grants citizenship rights that include social, political, welfare and civic rights and freedom to cross ‘national’ borders to all citizens living within it. Some argue that this arrangement constitutes the ‘European citizen’, reflected in everyone having the same colour passport.
