This volume explores the different ways in which the idea of citizenship can be seen as a unifying concept in understanding contemporary social change. The text outlines traditional linkages between citizenship and public participation, national identity and social welfare, and shows the relevance of citizenship for a range of contemporary issues extending from global change through gender to the environment. The issues explored include the challenge of internationalization to the nation state and its effect on national identity; the contested nature of citizenship in relation to poverty, work and welfare; redefining citizenship in relation to gender inequality, and the potential for new concepts of environmental citizenship and cultural citizenship. It is suitable for students and academics in politics, sociology and social policy.
