Show Summary Details


This chapter analyses the reasons behind increasing debates on the issue of American citizenship. It is argued that the intensity of these debates reflects the tensions arising within and among three analytically distinct relational domains: international law and politics, national politics, and federalism. Observations are presented on the theory of “post-national citizenship”.

Keywords: American citizenship; immigration; relational domains; post-national citizenship
