Romanian Citizenship in a European Context

Citizenship represents an important part of constitutional law, establishing the ways in which you can acquire and lose this quality, as well as the rights and obligations specific to citizens. The quality of being a citizen is acquired, according to the legislation of each state, through implementation of one of these two enshrined principles, jus sanguinis or jus soli. In general Romanian law for citizenship applies the jus sanguinis principle and when this principle cannot be applied because the bloodline is unknown, the jus soli principle is applied as an exception and only until the bloodline is determined. The evolution of the concept of the European citizen is incorporated in the concept of European identity. Romanian citizens can appeal their rights before the Romanian state authorities, rights that are anchored in the Romanian Constitution and also rights given to them as European citizens.
