Ja fa dies que la Unió Europea és una llum de referència en el concert dels pobles del món. Malgrat les trampes que facin els EE.UU. i per damunt de les febleses interiors.

Molts són, doncs, els qui s'aventuren a ultrapassar el seu particular Rubicó. Puntualment l'Eurostat ens dona suport quantitatiu:


" In 2006, 735 000 persons acquired citizenship of an EU27 Member State compared with 722 000 in 2005, 647 000 in 2003 and 483 000 in 1998.



These new citizens in 2006 came mainly from non-EU27 Europe (27% of the total number of citizenships acquired), Africa (27%), Asia (22%) and North and South America (12%). Citizens of one EU27 Member State who acquired citizenship in another Member State accounted for 8% of the total.
.
In many Member States, the citizenship of a child is determined by its parents' citizenship, rather than its place
birth.
Therefore acquisition of citizenship concerns not only migrants but also their descendents.
The acquisition of citizenship can be considered as an important part of the migratory and integration processes.

Highest number of citizenships per resident foreigner granted in Sweden and Slovenia In 2006, the highest number of citizenships were granted by the United Kingdom (154 000 persons), France (148 000) and Germany
(125 000), which together accounted for nearly 60% of all citizenships granted by the EU27 Member States. "




En termes relatius (% de nous per cada mil habitants)els paisos d'acollida amb més esforç resulten Suècia, Eslovènia, Regne Unit, Eslovàquia, França, Paisos Baixos i Letònia.


En termes absoluts Letònia, Suècia, Xipre, Estònia, Austria i Bèlgica encapçalen la llista i Lituània, Polònia i Romania la tanquen.



Si observem els volums absoluts segons origen, tenim que:


"In 2006, the largest groups acquiring citizenship of an EU27 Member State were citizens of Turkey (64 000 persons), Morocco (48 000), Iraq (23 000), Ecuador (21 000) and Serbia and Montenegro (20 000). "


For each of these five groups, a large proportion of the citizenships was granted by an individual Member State.

Germany granted 52% of total EU27 citizenships acquired by Turks, France 46% of those acquired by Moroccans, Sweden 56% of those acquired by Iraqis, Spain 92% of those acquired by Ecuadorians and the United Kingdom 38% of those acquired by citizens of former Serbia and Montenegro.
"



In some Member States, a large proportion of those granted citizenship came from a single country. The Member States with the highest concentrations were Hungary (71% of the new citizens came from Romania), Slovenia (53% from Bosnia and Herzegovina), Bulgaria (44% from the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) and Poland (42% from Ukraine). "



Encara que les xifres son del 2006 és sorprenent que l'Estat Español te un paper discret en aquestes estadístiques. Potser perque molts dels nostres immigrants directament són NO ciutadans.

Si no tenen papers, si no són ciutadans, si no tenen drets,... aleshores han de pagar impostos ? tenen deures ?
