PAIR3043 Transformations of Citizenship in a Globalizing World
Citizenship denotes both a legal status of membership in a polity and a political practice of civic action. This module addresses the transformations of citizenship – and of how we think about and theorize citizenship – in a globalizing world. It addresses three (related) topics: multicultural (or post-colonial) citizenship, transnational citizenship and global citizenship.
Aims and Objectives
This module aims to provide students with a critical understanding of how processes of globalization have impacted on the theory and practice of citizenship in terms of: - the increasing diversity of state citizenries and debates concerning multiculturalism and post-colonialism, - the development of transnational forms of citizenship (such as dual nationality) and civic action across borders in relation to theories of democratic inclusion and multilevel governance, - the idea and practice of global citizenship in contemporary theoretical debates on citizenship.
Having successfully completed this module you will be able to:
- Identify and critically engage with the transformations of citizenship in a globalizing world
- Cogently debate and evaluate the different theoretical perspectives on transformations and their normative significance
