This conference intends to explore how migration may be changing the way we understand citizenship in Europe. The development of EU citizenship and post national theories of citizenship suggest that there is a decoupling of rights from identity. Large scale migration can be seen as contributing to this trend. At the same time there may be counter trends. Heightened concerns about security may mitigate against conceiving of citizenship in post national terms and prompt a (re)assertion of traditional ways of thinking about national identity, citizenship and rights.
