Regarding Roman law the main focus of analysis was on the development up to the so-called constitutio Antoniniana from 212 which granted Roman citizenship to almost all free inhabitants of the Roman state. Legal status of peregrini and the problem of desirability of Roman citizenship in different periods is specifically addressed. Different methods of acquiring Roman citizenship are also analysed, as well as circumstances surrounding the aforementioned constitution. Generally, Roman policy of principal inclusivity regarding foreigners and its limitations are scrutinised. Finally, legal status of migrants in EU is put in the context of the previous analysis, and potentially relatable circumstances between Roman law and the current situation regarding the actual or future policies are examined.
