Abstract

The concept of political identity is leading a languishing and somewhat obscure existence in contemporary social sciences. Both theoretically and empirically there is an evident need to reconsider the concept of political identity and identification and to revitalize the concept in order to bring it more in sync with prevalent modes of social citizenship. This panel seeks out to explore approaches to political identity in order to suggest a frame for discussion and/or a conceptualization of political identity. The ambition originates from fundamental challenges for approaches to identity and identity-formation, as well as to problems related to the general use of the concept in most political science. There are several reasons for such a focus, both related to the salience of political identities in political affairs, how identities function in ordinary people’s lives, and also related to new types of political participation, social movements, social turmoil, etc.
