This chapter examines the changes in citizenship in Europe. It is argued that national citizenship is being reconfigured into two distinct directions: post-national membership and neo-national membership, which constitute limited kinds of convergence among European states. The changing strategies evident in policies, public discourse, collective action, and other political and institutional outcomes are identified.

Keywords: citizenship; Europe; post-national membership; neo-national membership
