Abstract:Record‐high numbers of immigrants have recently acquired the citizenship of EU and OECD member countries, and the demand for naturalisation is unlikely to abate in the future. Indeed, it may well increase if immigration flows continue to rise in response to ageing populations and workforces in OECD countries. This is one reason why the links between the acquisition of the host‐country nationality and immigrants' integration into the economy and society have become of key importance.
