Have you ever asked yourself what citizenship is? well here is the clarity. Citizenship is a relationship between an individual and a state to which the individual owes allegiance and in turn is entitled to its protection. A citizen can be defined as a member of a political community who enjoys the rights and assumes duties of membership.
Other than being a member of a political community, a citizen must be a member of a state according to law. Citizenship means that one has access to exclusive benefits offered to citizens by member states to the exclusion of members of other nationalities and stateless persons.
