THE DREAM OF CITIZENSHIP. MIXED MARRIAGES IN JORDAN: CHALLENGES, OBSTACLES AND STRUGGLES
Languages of publication
The Jordanian law states that only a Jordanian male may pass on his citizenship to his children. Jordanian women cannot pass on their nationality to their husband or to their children. The Nationality Law reflects the conception that nationality based on blood ties is established only through the father and is not tied to the land or nation. There are currently a number of different initiatives that promote changes in the citizenship law. The concept of citizenship is at the center of the debate not only on women’s rights in Jordan, but also national identity and relations with state.
