Beyond its emotional resonance and cultural ramifications, citizenship provides the legal and social framework for individual autonomy and political democracy. Recently, the question of citizenship has gained renewed attention in response to major trends worldwide - welfare entitlement cuts, democratization in Eastern Europe, a rise in ethnic and national conflict, and an increase in global migration. In this multidisciplinary volume, scholars from sociology, political theory, philosophy, anthropology, and history offer key analyses of the multiple debates surrounding these changes while interrogating traditional views of citizenship.
