SARRIBLE, Graciela. Definiciones y datos sobre migración internacional y nacionalidad: el caso de España. Migr. Inter [online]. 2002, vol.1, n.2, pp.123-146. ISSN 2594-0279.

Using the case of Spain, this article examines the differences between the categories of "nationality" and "international migration" that has both international and local sources. Certain statements are formulated that contrast with the data to show that international migration is not exclusively a question of foreigners but also involves Spanish nationals. The article also analyzes two realities based on jus sanguinis, the law that blood relationship determines Spanish nationality: 1) Spaniards can be born in Spain or abroad, and foreigners can be born within Spanish territory. The conclusion suggests some practical issues for understanding the data about the categories of "Spaniard" and "foreigner."

Keywords : international migration; nationality; foreigners; statistical data; Spain.
