Summary

Within and Beyond Citizenship brings together cutting-edge research in sociology and social anthropology on the relationship between immigration status, rights and belonging in contemporary societies of immigration. It offers new insights into the ways in which political membership is experienced, spatially and bureaucratically constructed, and actively negotiated and contested in the everyday lives of citizens and non-citizens. Themes, concepts and ideas covered include:

  • The shifting position of the non-citizen in contemporary immigration societies;
  • The intersection of human mobility, immigration control and articulations of citizenship;
  • Activism and everyday practices of membership and belonging;
  • Tension in policy and practice between coexisting traditions and regimes of rights;
  • Mixed status families, belonging and citizenship;
  • The ways in which immigration status (or its absence) intersects with social cleavages such as age, class, gender and ‘race’ to shape social relations.

This book will appeal to academics and practitioners working in the disciplines of Social and Political Anthropology, Sociology, Social Policy, Human Geography, Political Sciences, Citizenship Studies and Migration Studies.
