Synopsis

Prospects for Citizenship by Gerry Stoker, Andrew Mason, David Owen, Chris Armstrong

Is citizenship in decline due to globalisation and an erosion of civic participation and democratic representation? Or is it merely transformed and extended to new levels and larger scales? Should we assess these challenges and changes primarily from a perspective of global justice, or consider also membership in a democratic polity as itself a basic good? Prospects for Citizenship addresses these broad questions in a unique collaborative effort. The result is an impressive book that looks at the future of citizenship from multiple research perspectives while remaining coherent in its overall purpose. Rainer Baubock, European University Institute, Florence This book offers a perspicuous overview of the prospects for citizenship in our contemporary political context. The authorial team draw on a wide range of empirical and normative research in order to offer an incisive analysis of the problems and pressures of citizenship in the twenty-first century. The authors focus in particular on the apparent decline of traditional forms of civic engagement, the emergence of new forms of participation and the relationship between citizenship and globalization.

Reviews

Who becomes a citizen and what citizenship means are undergoing redefinition in theory and practice. This volume assesses these developments from both a normative and an empirical perspective. The result is one of the most sophisticated and well-informed explorations currently available of how far citizenship has, should or could go beyond the traditional liberal democratic practices of nation states. * Richard Bellamy *
