DescriptionContentsAuthors

This volume bridges two separate academic debates on the problems of democracy and the political community in a transnational context. The authors discuss the theoretical concerns of citizenship in an age of globalization and the inclusive and exclusive character of citizenship in contemporary society, taking as a starting point the status, role and function of citizenship within democratic systems and multilayered government structures.

This novel approach adds a broad array of critical, conceptual and normative perspectives on the borders, territories and political agents of the state, employing a variety of disciplines to explore the possibilities and challenges for citizens as political agents in light of present processes of fragmentation and pluralization.
