Critical global citizenship: contextualising citizenship and globalisation

globalisation. The outcome of these structural changes is the emergence of a multicentred world where not only socio-economic struggles but also cultural rights claims are made by vulnerable and minority groups and where the sites of contestations are no longer territorially bound but global in their political and discursive constructions and manifestations. It is for these reasons that the Journal of Citizenship and Globalisation Studies aims to engage critically with the nature and problematics of new forms of citizenship in a global context. The aim is to investigate

Reclaiming Citizenship in the Post-Democratic Condition

1 Introduction At its most basic, the notion of citizenship refers to the rights and obligations conferred to an individual by virtue of their membership in a political community such as the nation-state ( Tilly, 1997 ).

Battling for citizenship
A case study of Somali settlement in Lieksa, Finland

Introduction Our research focusses on the experiences of Somali immigrants who reside in a small eastern Finnish town called Lieksa. In Finland, the municipalities are responsible for executing many rights, including economic and social rights, which is why it is essential to evaluate the realisation of such rights at the local level. When examining Somalis’ citizenship positions in this context, we have come to understand the relevance of not only acting as a citizen, but also the social force directed towards the Somali residents to prevent them from
