Strategic citizenship: Negotiating membership in the age of dual nationality

Princeton University,Whig Hall, March 7-8, 2016

Conference Abstract

Over the past two decades, there has been a worldwide legitimization of new forms of nation-state membership that challenge traditional conceptions of citizenship pre-mised on the exclusive loyalty and residence. These are, above all, multiple citizenship and non-resident (or external) citizenship.

This legal reconfiguration has created new opportunities for individuals and families to strategize their national membership/s, decoupling citizenship and residence, legal status and identity. A series of pragmatic citizenship strategies have emerged at the individual and family levels, aimed at securing additional rights, especially mobility, security and access to economic opportunities. These developments are reopening questions about the meaning of national identity within citizenship and the future of national membership within a stratified global system.

New research has begun to emerge which seeks to understand these transformations from a “bottom-up” empirical approach that provides a crucial complement to the “top-down”, state-focused approaches that traditionally dominated the study of citizenship.

This conference brings together researchers working in the context of these new perspectives; by fostering these new discussions, it aims to contribute to the development of a comparative, theoretically-informed approach to external and multiple citizenship practices
