Article 15. (1) Everyone has the right to a nationality.
By the way, the article you list above is precisely the reason that migrants destroy their identity papers before they take off for the Canaries.
I hate to be flippant (translation I enjoy being flippant), but if European countries were interested in limiting migration, they would pay for censuses in African countries. And offer development aid in exchange for creating a Europol database that contained this information.
That way you could end the very serious problem with abuse of this article of international law, which in the end undermine the protection it creates for actual cases of denaturalization of citizens by regimes that violate human rights.

But you cannot deport people to a country where they're not a national even if it's their "country of origin". The other country is not required to take them if they're not nationals. And we just had a discussion of how the Netherlands is requiring those applying for naturalisation to give up their previous nationality in order to "improve" integration.

If you are sentenced the period is prolonged. If you have debts the period may be prolonged.
I guess the immigrants are not only criminal but also so lazy that they can not be bothered to commit the crimes they came here to commit until suddenly 4 or 5 years has passed and a swedish citizenship comes flying (after they filled in the forms, payed the fees, proved their identity)?
So how long would you want people to wait?

And having to pass exams in Swedish, language culture and history, making sure their loyalty has been transfered to their new country and so on.
The United States is, for once, a good example.
(even though they put more focus on language and loyalty and less on culture and history, maybe because they haven't got very much of those things)
Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
making sure their loyalty has been transfered to their new country
(I'm not sure I've ever felt loyalty to any country.)
You have a normal feeling for a moment, then it passes. --More--
What is loyalty to a country anyway?
