Citizenship and constitutional law: An introduction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The goal of this collection is to uncover the different ways in which constitutional law and citizenship intersect. Linking citizenship and constitutional law in this way can help to elucidate many of the foundational dilemmas of the modern state, as well as offering a deeper understanding of the condition of citizenship in the modern world. The advantage of taking a constitutional approach is that it enables us to take a close look at the fundamentals of the legal status of citizenship, whilst exploring other aspects of citizenship which are not as effectively captured purely by a formal legal approach to membership, such as issues of identity and community.
