Abstract

Citizenship plays a central role in constructing political communities: through citizenship, membership in the polity and complex relations between citizens and polities are defined. Understood as the link between a sovereign political community and the individual, citizenship serves as a contested arena of social, legal and political struggles. Citizenship delineates both the internal and external borders of political community and belonging, and these borders shape the life chances and experiences of both citizens and non-citizens. Borders of citizenship are formed by ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality. Citizenship has had a strong association with nation-states, but this link is becoming obsolete due to processes like globalisation, migration and pluralization of identities. The contexts of citizenship are diversifying more and more and citizenship ‘beyond’ or ‘between’ nation states are increasingly discussed. However, national ideas are far from disappearing and they are still applied also to citizenship construction. In this panel, the inclusions and exclusions related to citizenship are discussed in the contexts of external voting, economic citizenship and the instrumentalisation of citizenship. The relation of citizenship to statehood and statelessness is also addressed.
