Yossi Harpaz is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Tel-Aviv University. He has earned his Ph.D. in Sociology from Princeton University. Yossi’s research interests include citizenship, globalization, international migration, national identity, and social theory.

Yossi’s book, Citizenship 2.0: Dual Nationality as a Global Asset, is forthcoming with Princeton University Press in September 2019. The book examines the global consequences of states’ increasing toleration of dual citizenship. It argues that the proliferation of dual citizenship creates opportunities for individuals from less developed countries to strategically acquire a second nationality, which they use instrumentally as a premium passport, insurance policy, and even status symbol.

Yossi’s research has also appeared in the International Migration Review, Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies and other venues. Among other prizes, his dissertation has won the 2017 Maria Baganha Dissertation Award from the International Migration, Integration and Social Cohesion in Europe (IMISCOE).
