Examples of public debates on citizenship and right to vote

A couple of movies are found under the "relevant links" section to the bottom right of this page.

The first one is a debate from 1993 on the French television with Francois Mitterand regarding the right of vote of immigrants for local elections (in French). Interesting to see arguments brought to public attention already 15 years ago.

The second movie is a 30 minutes long interview with an English secondary school teacher on how citizenship should be defined. Sometime not totally convincing, some time being quite provocative too - anyway a source of inspiration for further debate.

Just click on the images to start watching the videos. The video will appear at the top of the page, right below the title.
