What is the future of citizenship in the global age? How to “include” people who increasingly find themselves outside the state’s shelter? While the notion of national citizenship has long held the promise of inclusion, it has proved less useful in a world of accelerated migrations and displacements.In this engaging lecture, sociologist Aneesh Aneesh identifies a nascent political formation where citizenship is untied from one territory, one state, and one system of rights, and citizenship floats as a virtual basket of rights, enforced by various states, and negotiated by a variety of organizations.
