The Danish requirements for citizenship are often grounded on an ideal about rewarding personal effort and responsibility. A similar ideal is known from luck egalitarianism, a widely known and accepted theory of justice.

The article concludes dismissively and offers a number of ways of improving Danish citizenship policy in terms of fairness.
