In Italy: 900,000 children in a struggle for citizenship. The children who are born from migrants in Italy, about 900,000 are not citizens of Italy. They have to wait until they are 18 years of age, before they can apply for the right of Italian citizenship, and sometimes this is not granted. This leaves them with the option of living and traveling with the permission to stay, as if they have just arrived in Italy a month earlier.

Italien: 900.000 Kinder kämpfen für Staatsbürgerschaft. Es gibt in Italien viele Kinder von MigrantInnen, ungefähr 900.000, die keine italienischen StaatsbürgerInnen sind. Sie müssen bis zu ihrem 18. Geburtstag warten, bevor sie die italienische Staatsbürgerschaft beantragen können, und manchmal wird sie ihnen verweigert. Dies lässt ihnen nur die Möglichkeit, mit einer Aufenthaltsgenehmigung zu leben und sich im Land zu bewegen, als wären sie gerade vor einem Monat in Italien angekommen.
