Citizenship of Saudi Women between the Legal and the Lived Reality: The Moment of Marrying a Non-national.

Auther : Dr. Hatoon A. AL Fassi


Objectives: This paper aims at finding solutions to the discriminatory problem that Arab Gulf women in general, and Saudi women, in particular, are facing in maintaining their citizenship. They are not allowed to pass their nationalities to their children when they get married to non-nationals. It also aims to show the present and future economic, social, security perils and consequences of this policy on state and society.
Method: This paper is using the historical, investigative, analytical method through the resources written on citizenship, and the modern state. It also analyzes the legal texts in relation to the local activism and the international treaties signed by the state. The paper's samples are women's voices inside and outside the kingdom.
Results: The paper finds that Saudi women passing their nationality to their children is possible and necessary to secure stability on the political, the social, the security, and the economic levels.
Conclusion: The study sees that for Saudi women to realize full citizenship, all forms of discrimination should be removed by enabling them to extend their nationality to their children like their fellow male citizens.

Keywords: Citizenship, Female citizen, Extending nationality, International Treaties, National constitutions, Equality, Activism, Saudi women.
