Abstract

“Citizenship” – understood as the link between a sovereign political community and the individual – has served as a contested arena of social, legal, and political struggles (Marshall, 1950). The term has traditionally been defined by means of the rights and duties of citizens of nation-states. However, the scope of the citizenship concept has expanded in the context of processes such as globalization, migration, the pluralization of identities, as well as increasing individualism and movements to empower marginalized groups. Yet, national(ist) ideas and discriminatory policies continue to serve as a tool for demarcation between people (Skey, 2011). In this panel, we reconsider the concept of citizenship (including the rights and duties associated with it and their implications for different groups of people) in different settings, and particularly with a focus on exclusionary practices and possible ways for empowerment.
