Abstract

This panel takes a conceptual approach to citizenship. The focus is on the meanings and political uses of the concept of citizenship and conceptual struggles related to it. Citizenship with its sub-dimensions – such as access, rights, duties and participation – is a core concept for conceptualising democracy and it plays a central role in constructing political communities and memberships. It is always contested and redefined. Against this backdrop, the panel asks how, for instance, increasing mobility, European integration, regionalism, globalisation or transformation processes of nation states change the concept and set old conceptions and categories in move? Or, how the use of the concept of citizenship constructs agencies and power hierarchies, inclusions and exclusions in different contexts? The panel welcomes papers which investigate how citizenship is theorised, debated or practised.
