Citizenship has become one of the most dynamic areas of political contestation due to the social and political turmoil in the context of globalisation, transnationalism, migration and multi-level governance. In this Standing Group, citizenship and its personal, cultural, social, economic and political implications are investigated through interdisciplinary research from multiple theoretical perspectives. We address how citizenship continues to formulate relations between polities and individuals through rights, duties, participation and identities. In the context of increased diversity, less participation and growing political distrust we also explore and research how schools prepare citizens for their civic life in citizenship education.
The common ground in this Standing Group is “Citizenship”, how it’s understood and theorized, legalized in the states, policies of citizenship, practiced in all aspects of societies as well as taught in school. The field as well as the group is clearly inter-disciplinary.
The Group is to form a network and possibly present applications for research projects related to the field of citizenship, democracy, education and learning. The main task of the group will be to support and facilitate research and organise round table conferences between the main ECPR conferences. It will also arrange Sections and Panels at ECPR conferences
