Important factors to consider in residence planning
The Kälin and Kochenov’s Quality of Nationality Index Global Rankings report presents selected highlights of Kälin and Kochenov’s Quality of Nationality Index (QNI), which is soon to be published by Hart. The report includes a supplementary overview of the comparative quality of nationalities in key regions of the world and of the countries that host the world’s most notable investment migration programs.
The QNI ranks the objective value of all nationalities as legal statuses of attachment to states. Using a wide variety of strictly quantifiable data to gauge the opportunities presented and limitations imposed by nationalities on their holders, the QNI provides a comprehensive ranking of the intrinsic quality of each citizenship status of the world. Both the internal value (economic opportunities, human development, and peace and stability) and the external value (including the number and quality of visa-free travel and, crucially, settlement destinations) of all the nationalities of the world are measured, only to reveal the reality that the quality of nationalities is not correlated with the prestige of the issuing states.
Beautifully produced, richly illustrated, and accompanied by insightful expert commentary, the QNI is the seminal reference for citizenship aficionados. It is also an invaluable tool to illustrate the huge discrepancies in the value of the nationalities of the world: showcasing first hand the unequal distribution of rights and opportunities that different nationalities bring to their holders.
