Investigating Citizenship: an agenda for citizenship studies

Isin, Engin F. and Turner, Bryan S. (2007). Investigating Citizenship: an agenda for citizenship studies. Citizenship Studies, 11(1) pp. 5–17.



This essay takes stock of our editorial collaboration in the past decade and outlines those ideas that we find most promising and approaches that are most fruitful in investigating citizenship. We offer it as an agenda; not so much a dogmatic sequence of principles as an ethos toward conceiving democratic citizenship as a cosmopolitan virtue. We propose a cosmopolitan mobility tax and a cosmopolitan goods and services tax to illustrate how that cosmopolitan virtue must find a practical expression.
