How does one live in an increasingly deterritorialized world that is still shaped by a state-centric conception of citizenship? Taking up this profound question from the perspective of the Global South, this volume is a timely meditation on the forms and functions of citizenship in a globalized world. Drawing from many different disciplinary perspectives and covering a wide range of empirical and geographical contexts, the essays in this collection provide some important insights into mutating conceptions of citizenship, new forms of subjectivity, and shifting articulations of justice in our contemporary world.

Many commentators have grappled with the impact of the multiple processes of globalization on the content and practices of citizenship. Few however have done this as incisively and innovatively as the contributors to the volume edited by Bashir and Gray. By bringing together superbly researched accounts from a diversity of disciplinary, historical, and regional perspectives, the collection provides a wealth of solid knowledge and sharp insights on the globalization and citizenship nexus. It is expected that the conceptual sophistication, empirical scope, and theoretical depth of the volume will make it invaluable for the teaching, explanation, and understanding of the complex and uneasy relationship between citizenship and globalization.
