La discriminazione di genere e di residenza in Liechtenstein fra esercizio dei diritti politici e cittadinanza dimidiata
Gender and residence discrimination in Liechtenstein between exercise of political rights and reduced citizenship – Liechtenstein has long hindered a full access to voting rights to a number of citizens, whilst also excluding permanent residents unless they acquired its citizenship. The unavoidable integration in the supranational European legal framework (ECHR) and a progressive evolution of the sensitivity of its public opinion have eventually made it possible to enfranchise women, whose citizenship is also no longer revoked in case of marriage to a foreigner. Yet, residence requirements for the access to suffrage and a prejudice towards dual citizenship question the actual commitment of the country to a full enfranchisement of its citizens and long-term residents.
