EUDO Citizenship is a network of citizenship researchers in 46 European countries, including the European Union and its neighbourhood, and has received funding from the European Commission, the British Academy and UNHCR, among others. The website of the Observatory provides updated information on acquisition and loss of citizenship, national and international legal norms, citizenship statistics, bibliographical resources, comparative analyses and debates about research strategies and policy reforms. EUDO Citizenship is based within the EUDO web platform hosted by the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute, a unique international center for doctorate and post-doctorate studies and research. The RSCAS focuses on inter-disciplinary, comparative and policy research on the major issues affecting European societies.

Maarten Vink was one of the founding consortium members of EUDO Citizenship in 2009. He is responsible for setting up and managing the databases with comparative information on modes of acquisition and loss of citizenship as well as on citizenship acquisition statistics across European states. He currently leads a number of EU-funded research projects on the access to citizenship and the impact on immigrant integration, as well as a project in cooperation with UNHCR on protection against statelessness in Europe. Vink will join Rainer Bauböck (European University Institute) and Jo Shaw (University of Edinburgh) as Co-Director of the Observatory.
