This book presents a clear and comprehensive overview of citizenship, which has become one of the most important political ideas of our time. The author, an experienced textbook writer and teacher, uses a postmodern theory of citizenship to ask topical questions as: * Can citizenship exist without the nation-state? * What should the balance be between our rights and responsibilities? * Should we enjoy group as well as individual rights? * Is citizenship relevant to our private as well as our public lives? * Have processes of globalisation rendered citizenship redundant?

Citizenship describes, analyzes and interprets the topic of citizenship in a global context as it has developed historically, in its variations as a political concept and status, and the ways in which citizens have been and are being educated for that status. The book provides a historical survey which ranges from the Ancient Greeks to the twentieth century, and reveals the legacies which each era passed on to later centuries. It explains the meaning of citizenship, what political citizenship entails and the nature of citizenship as a status, and also tackles the issue of whether there can be a generally accepted, holistic understanding of the idea. For this new edition an epilogue has been written which demonstrates the intense nature of the academic and pedagogical debates on the subject as well as the practical matters relating to the status since 1990.

Citizenship and Nationhood in France and Germany

"The difference between French and German definitions of citizenship is instructive - and, for millions of immigrants from North Africa, Turkey, and Eastern Europe, decisive. Rogers Brubaker shows how this difference - between the territorial basis of the French citizenry and the German emphasis on blood descent - was shaped and sustained by sharply differing understandings of nationhood, rooted in distinctive French and German paths to nation-statehood". --Publisher.

The idea of citizenship is widely used in daily life. ‘Citizenship tests’ are used to determine who can inhabit a country; ‘citizen charters’ have been used to prescribe levels of service provision; ‘citizens’ juries’ are used in planning or policy enquiries; ‘citizenship’ lessons are taught in schools; youth organisations attempt often aim to instil ‘good’ citizenship; ‘active citizens’ are encouraged to contribute voluntary effort to their local communities and campaigners may use ‘citizens’ rights’ to achieve their goals. What is meant by citizenship is never static and the subject of debate by academics, politicians and activists. These ideas are manifest and contested at a range of different scales. This book therefore argues geography is crucial to understanding citizenship. The text is organised around a number of spatial themes to examine how spatialities of citizenship are played out at a range of scales. Ideas about locality, boundaries, mobility, networks, rurality and globalisation are used to reveal the importance of space and place in the constitution, contestation and performance of citizenship. In doing so, the book reveals how different ideas of citizenship can include or exclude people from society and space. Consideration is given to ways in which different groups have sought to empower themselves through various actions associated with and beyond conventional notions of citizenship. Written in an accessible way with detailed case studies to illustrate conceptual ideas and approaches, this book offers social scientists new spatial perspectives on citizenship while also bridging together strands of social, cultural and political geography in ways that deepen understandings of people and place.

Citizenship and Immigration in Postwar Britain

In this contentious and ground-breaking study, the author draws on extensive archival research to provide a new account of the transforamtion of the United Kingdom into a multicultural society through an analysis of the evolution of immigration and citizenship policy since 1945. Against the prevailing academic orthodoxy, he argues that British immigration policy was not racist but both rational and liberal. - ;In this ground-breaking book, the author draws extensively on archival material and theortical advances in the social science literature. Citizenship and Immigration in Post-war Britain examines the transformation since 1945 of the UK from a homogeneous into a multicultural society. Rejecting a dominant strain of sociological and historical inquiry emphasizing state racism, Hansen argues that politicians and civil servants were overall liberal relative to the public, to which they owed their office, and that they pursued policies that were rational for any liberal democratic politician. He explains the trajectory of British migration and nationality policy - its exceptional liberality in the 1950s, its restrictiveness after then, and its tortured and seemingly racist definition of citizenship. The combined effect of a 1948 imperial definition of citizenship (adopted independently of immigration), and a primary commitment to migration from the Old Dominions, locked British politicians into a series of policy choices resulting in a migration and nationality regime that was not racist in intention, but was racist in effect. In the context of a liberal elite and an illiberal public, Britain's current restrictive migration policies result not from the faling of its policy-makers but from those of its institutions. -

Hochschulsponsoring als Corporate Citizenship

Hochschulen Sponsoring wird uberwiegend als ein erweiterndes Instrument der Kommunikationspolitik verstanden, es findet sich aber zunehmend auch in den Forschungskontexten von Corporate Citizenship bzw. Corporate Social Responsibility. Sponsoring kann insofern als Ausdruck einer gesellschaftlichen Verantwortungsubernahme bzw. eines unternehmerischen Burgerengagements interpretiert werden und erfahrt seine strategische Bedeutung durch die damit verbundene Integration in unternehmerische Werte- und Zielsysteme. Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht am Beispiel von Hochschulen die Relevanz von Hochschulsponsoring fur Konzepte des Corporate Citizenship in Deutschland und den USA. Es zeigt sich, dass Hochschulsponsoring in den USA einen traditionell hoheren Stellenwert besitzt, was teilweise durch ein divergierendes Verstandnis von Sponsoring im Sinne eines Cause Related Sponsoring und einer starkeren Bedeutung privater Elemente in der Bildung begrundet ist. Es ist zu erwarten, dass aufgrund der sinkenden Bedeutung offentlicher Gelder fur Bildung auch in Deutschland eine Umorientierung stattfinden wird und Unternehmen im Bildungsbereich starker Verantwortung ubernehmen werden. Basierend auf einer Literaturanalyse sowie einer empirischen Untersuchung diskutiert diese Arbeit Ansatze zur strategischen, organisatorischen und kommunikativen Gestaltung bei der Integration von Hochschulsponsoring in Konzepte der Ubernahme burgerschaftlicher Verantwortung durch Unternehmen. Higher Education Sponsoring is mostly seen as a traditional instrument of Communication, it is found, however, also in the context of Corporate Citizenship research. Thus, it can be understood as the first strategic step of companies to assume responsibility for the society and therefore touches and influences the Corporate value system. This dissertation examines the possibility of integrating Sponsoring of Higher Education Institutions into Corporate Citizenship concepts in Germany and the U.S. Through an approach that is theory-based but also includes empirical research, it was found that a different understanding of Sponsorship as Cause Related Sponsoring and a more dominant role of the private sector in the U.S. Education system leads to concepts, that will become relevant for Germany as well, as the public support for universities will continue to decline and requires more and more companies to assume responsibility. Based on this, a set of initial guidelines for a strategic framework, approaches to communication and organizational issues is developed and discussed.

Throughout Europe longstanding ideas of what it means to be a citizen are being challenged. The sense of belonging to a nation has never been more in flux. Simultaneously, nationalistic and racist movements are gaining ground and barriers are being erected against immigration. This volume examines how concepts of citizenship have evolved in different countries and varying contexts. It explores the interconnection between ideas of the nation, modes of citizenship and the treatment of migrants. Adopting a multi-disciplinary and international approach, this collection brings together experts from several fields including political studies, history, law and sociology. By juxtaposing four European countries - Britain, France, Germany and Italy - and setting current trends against a historical background, it highlights important differences and exposes similarities in the urgent questions surrounding citizenship and the treatment of minorities in Europe today.
