This conference addresses the question of what value citizenship has for individuals and states from various disciplinary perspectives, including comparative political science, normative political theory, law, history, human geography and economics. Papers explore the instrumental and identity value of citizenship for individuals as well as for states. Panels focus on citizenship and social and political rights, citizenship and the politics of migration control, the governance of citizenship around the world, evolving conceptions of citizenship, and the value of citizenship for vulnerable groups.
The conference is co-financed by the Migrant Life Course and Legal Status Transition (MiLifeStatus) project and the Global Citizenship Governance project, which have received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme (Grant No. 682626 and Grant No. 716350).
