Citizenship laws vary by country, but in the case of newborn babies, most countries grant citizenship to the child if one or both of its parents are citizens of that country. However, some countries will grant citizenship to anyone born in their country, whether the parents are citizens or not. Many countries practise both, but some have placed restrictions on the children of non-residents claiming citizenship by being born there. There are obviously many reasons for and against assigning citizenship by place of birth, but what do you think? Should citizenship be assigned by place of birth?
