Understanding the contemporary transformation of citizenship requires insights from many disciplines and perspectives. The Oxford Handbook of Citizenship brings together multidisciplinary and comparative contributions from legal academics, political scientists, sociologists, geographers, historians, and philosophers, to set a new agenda for both theoretical and practical explorations of citizenship. The main challenges and prospects in today's world of increased migration and globalization will be explored, and attention will also be given to new forms of membership and democratic participation beyond borders, as well as to the rise of European and multilevel citizenship-developments that are increasing the potential for citizenship to operate not only at the nation-state level, but also above and below it. The Handbook will be a major reference for those engaged with citizenship from a legal, political, and cultural perspective.
