9781848134720: Globalizing Citizens: New Dynamics of Inclusion and Exclusion (Claiming Citizenship - Rights, Participation and Accountability)

Globalizing Citizens explores how globalization has given rise to new meanings of citizenship.  Just as they are tied by global production, trade and finance, citizens in every nation are linked by the institutions of global governance. This expert new analysis presents case studies from cities and villages in India, South Africa, Nigeria, Philippines, Kenya, The Gambia, Brazil and South Africa to explore how new forms of global authority shape and build new meanings and practices of citizenship, across local, national and global arenas. For some, globalization has provided a new sense of global solidarity that has inspired them to join transnational movements and mobilise to claim rights from global authorities, but for others, globalization has meant greater exposure to the power of global corporations, bureaucracies and scientific experts, thus adding new layers of exclusion to already fragile meanings of citizenship.

Review:

'Fascinating, original, painstakingly crafted case studies from diverse contexts are combined with probing conceptual reflections on the nature of rights and duties in today's more global society. Globalizing Citizenship develops a crucial and exciting agenda for the future.' Jan Aart Scholte, London School of Economics 'Through a collection of rich case studies, Gaventa and Tandon's book insightfully explores the politics of mobilisation, the politics of intermediation and the politics of knowledge involved in `local', `national' and `global' citizen action. The cases offer the reader realistic accounts of both global actions that have built solidarity and challenged the powerful, whilst also illustrating that sometime global citizen actions result in a reinforcement of powerful forces.' Helen Yanacopulos, The Open University
