In Rome, this is known as "the right of City" because belonging to the City is not something that is reserved for a few people, it is a legal status that needs to be give to every citizen of a country.
This right does not belong to all the inhabitants of the city but only to citizens. Initially, it was only the citizens, their family and descendents who made up the population of a city. But this is not true anymore. Thus, any city in the legal sense comprises of two categories of people: citizens and non-citizens.
A. Sources of citizenship:
Today, to determine the population of a country, we link the people to two major systems: the ones who are citizens by ?blood' or by birth, and those who acquire citizenship by ?ground' or rather those who acquire it by living there.
In Greece, these two systems are found to be linked. Initially, one could acquire citizenship only by the first way but now the second method is also permitted.
Those who are born to foreign parents in the territory of the City are not citizens. But now the issue of mixed marriages is making this issue more complicated. Generally, Greek law gives more importance to the father, and believes that they are responsible for their children.
