Hastings International and Comparative Law Review


Simone Tan


As society becomes increasingly global, more and more Americans are living abroad. As a result, dual nationality is increasingly common. This Note argues that the United States should adopt legislation making it easier for Americans living abroad to pass their citizenship on to their children. The author uses France's experience with its dual nationals as an example for the United States of how this situation can be handled effectively. The Note argues that by drawing on the principles of the French solution, the United States could keep the goodwill and tax dollars of its citizens living abroad.
