Citizenship is usually assumed to be a simple issue—either one has it or one doesn't. despite the fact that, because the members to Citizenship in Question exhibit, citizenship isn't self-evident; it emerges from usually vague written documents and is interpreted via ambiguous and dynamic legislation. In case reports that examine the criminal limitations to citizenship rights in over twenty nations, the participants discover how states use evidentiary standards to create and police citizenship, usually according to fictions of racial, ethnic, category, and spiritual transformations. even if analyzing the us’ deportation of its personal voters, the selective use of DNA checks and mystery ends up in Thailand, or legislation that experience stripped complete populations of citizenship, the members emphasize the political, mental, and private effect of citizenship regulations. Citizenship in Question incites students to revisit long-standing political theories and debates approximately nationality, unfastened circulation, and immigration premised at the assumption of transparent demarcations among electorate and noncitizens.
