This chapter seeks to elaborate and clarify the concept of citizenship, to specify how it may be used in various fields of welfare research, and to discuss some of the advantages of phrasing research questions in the language of citizenship. It examines unemployment as a challenge to citizenship, poverty and marginalisation, and citizenship and social exclusion. Finally, the chapter comments briefly on the notion of ‘active citizenship’.
