"Citizenship Lite" revisited

Joppke, Christian Georg (5 November 2015). "Citizenship Lite" revisited (Unpublished). In: Intersecting Discources on Migration in the UK, Germany and Russia. Birmingham, UK. 05.11.2015.

In a small book and article published in 2010, I argued that citizenship in the West was undergoing a process of "lightening": it has become easier to obtain, connotes fewer rights exclusively attached to it, and is capped by thin and thinning identities. In my presentation, I review the `citizenship lite` hypothesis in light of recent trends and scholarship.
