Abstract

Discussions of citizenship-now widespread in both legal and nonlegal academic literature-come at a time when many wonder whether the concept is anachronistic. Linked with a quickly fading notion of "nation-state sovereignty," the idea of citizenship is under attack from supra-, trans-, and post-national forces, from high rates of immigration in Western states that have led to multicultural and multi-ethnic societies, and from sub-national demands of indigenous groups and ethnic minorities for some forms of autonomy or self determination.
