Abstract

Citizenship in Africa has been increasingly contested since the end of the Cold War. The unexpected saliency of these issues has shaped our understanding of both democratic and violent political struggles on the continent. But this also raises questions about how and why ‘citizenship’ has taken on this particular role in African political thought and practice.
