Summer Course “The Politics of Citizenship” at Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary, from July 2-13, 2012
CEU's summer school invites applications from MA students, PhD students, researchers, and junior faculty in universities and other institutions from all over the world.
Recent years have seen an explosion of empirical and normative scholarly interest in citizenship across many disciplines. This course seeks to provide an overview of some of the main topical issues and scholarly perspectives in the social sciences, with special but not exclusive attention to citizenship in the law and politics of the states of Europe with a special focus on Eastern Europe. Given the special circumstances of new state formation and state succession in large parts of Eastern Europe after 1989, special attention will be given to problems of membership, ethnic selectivity, transnational and dual citizenship with their implications on the de- or re-ethnicization of citizenship. These processes will be examined from comparative and normative perspectives within the larger European context that connects citizenship of the Member States of the EU through a common citizenship of the Union and its associated rights of free movement.
