Towards Improving Access to Greek Citizenship
After two years of continuous research, recording and substantial interventions in the process of granting citizenship in our country, we are publishing our final report. The text Towards Improving Access to Greek Citizenship attempts to include all the experience of monitoring the new naturalization system as a whole and synthesize the conclusions drawn from the individual actions of the project during the past two years.
The project “Citizenship in practice” responds for the first time to the need of evaluation towards the administrative process of citizenship acquisition in Greece, in order to contribute to equal access to this right. The project seeks to find and propose ways and solutions for the public administration to improve this process. At the same time, it aims to inform the public about the important issue of effective access to citizenship.
Towards Improving Access to Greek Citizenship is the last action of the “Citizenship in Practice” project. Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity is responsible for the content and the production of the test, including the comments of its partner, the Hellenic League for Human Rights.
The project “Citizenship in Practice” is being implemented under the Active citizens fund program, by Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity, and its partner, the Hellenic League for Human Rights.
The Active citizens fund in Greece is supported through a € 13.5 m grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway as part of the EEA Grants 2014 – 2021. The programme aims to develop the sustainability and capacity of the civil society sector in Greece, and to strengthen its role in promoting and safeguarding democratic procedures, active citizenship and human rights. The Fund Operator for the Active citizens fund in Greece is Bodossaki Foundation in consortium with SolidarityNow.
