By Benjamin N. Lawrance,Jacqueline Stevens

Citizenship is frequently assumed to be a uncomplicated issue—either one has it or one doesn't. although, because the participants to Citizenship in Question show, citizenship isn't really self-evident; it emerges from frequently vague written files and is interpreted via ambiguous and dynamic legislation. In case reviews that study the criminal boundaries to citizenship rights in over twenty international locations, the members discover how states use evidentiary requisites to create and police citizenship, frequently in response to fictions of racial, ethnic, classification, and spiritual transformations. even if analyzing the U.S.’ deportation of its personal electorate, the selective use of DNA assessments and mystery ends up in Thailand, or legislation that experience stripped whole populations of citizenship, the participants emphasize the political, mental, and private effect of citizenship rules. Citizenship in Question incites students to revisit long-standing political theories and debates approximately nationality, loose move, and immigration premised at the assumption of transparent demarcations among voters and noncitizens.
