Event description

Description

The participants in this roundtable will analyse how citizenship has been historically constructed as racialised in affluent European countries. This history often gets obscured in political and academic debates about citizenship today. The explanatory categories of 'race' and the 'post-colonial' will be critically discussed in relation to the concept and current regimes of citizenship. Last but not least, comparative perspectives from the Global North will complement the more theoretical discussion.
