What People are Saying About This

Mark Salter

Globalizing Citizenship is an important contribution to analyses of the intensifying practices of detention, border control, and biometrics that structure the global mobility regime. Rygiel's concept of globalizing citizenship is extremely compelling and will motivate an engaged scholarly debate.

Benjamin Muller

There is a strong demand for sustained critical engagement with the contemporary securitization of citizenship and with the state's related reliance on practices of detention and expulsion. Globalizing Citizenship will make a substantial contribution to this recently burgeoning field of discussion.
