    A contradiction exists between dual nationality as a practical solution to domestic political problems and international norms against dual nationality as practical solutions to international problems. A political movement has grown in Germany which advocates allowing dual nationality so as to facilitate the naturalization and political incorporation of Germany's migrant population. The proliferation of dual nationality, however, raises the potential for conflict of nationality laws among states that had been (at least partially) resolved through the acceptance of a set of international legal norms against dual nationality. This paper examines this conflict through a review of the politics of dual nationality in Germany, assesses the potential for dual nationality becoming a new European norm, and explores the broader theoretical implications of such a new norm for international relations.
