  • Cittadinanza europea e cittadinanza nazionale. Luci e ombre di un rapporto

    • Authors: Maria Cristina Marchetti
      Abstract: The relationship between European citizenship and national one is since the first formulation the main topic of the debate on its statute. At the present time, the short circuit between European citizenship and national one produces differentiated effects: the freedom that member States have to assess the criteria for the acquisition of citizenship produces a contrast between ‘citizens non-resident’ and ‘non-citizens resident’.

  • Farewell to Welfare: An End to Citizenship as We Know It

    • Authors: Alessandro Pinzani
      Abstract: The crisis of the welfare state has been a widely discussed topic since at least the 1970s both in the social sciences and in political debate. It is not my intention to readdress it or to analyze the many diagnoses of the meaning and scope of the crisis: there is a huge amount of literature on this and I do not aim to add another contribution. Rather I would like to investigate the reasons that led to the wide acceptance among the public in Western Europe (and probably elsewhere) of the dismantling of certain features of the welfare state. To this end, I shall focus on the discourses that justified this process and that have provided a major shift in the political vocabulary from the grammar of (social) rights to the grammar of performance and (state) services. In other words, I shall concentrate on the paradigm change from a Keynesian model of welfare state to a ‘neoliberal’ model of personal responsibility. This change of paradigm threatens the very idea of citizenship as we have known it for centuries.

  • Cittadinanza formale e cittadinanza dal basso. Un rapporto dinamico

    • Authors: Maurizio Ambrosini
      Abstract: The permanent settlement of immigrants of foreign origin, and then the formation of the second and third generations, has long contributed to re-launching the debate on the content and limits of the institution of citizenship, bringing into question the close connection with the national states. The increasing number and the growing diversity of the legal status of foreigners residing in the territory of sovereign states blurs the dividing lines between insiders and outsiders. Therefore this raises questions about the criteria and ways of participation of residents in the community of citizens, with all the obligations and benefits that derive from it. After having considered the citizenship ‘from above’, that is in terms of the type of rights granted to foreign residents, their extent, timing and modes of access, the article presents a more recent branch of studies that starts ‘from below’, i.e. from the point of view of actual practices to access and use, re-interpretations and negotiations of the contents of citizenship: processes in which migrants and refugees take active roles at various levels and in different ways, both individual and collective.

  • Citizenship and Arbitrary Law-Making: On the Quaintness of Non-national

    • Authors: Patricia Mindus
      Abstract: The paper explores forms of arbitrariness in relation to citizenship and migration policies. Non-national disenfranchisement follows from certain migration policies, and these may be cast as an arbitrary form of domination, that may undermine political legitimacy. Political exclusion is the vertex of a chain of other forms of exclusion: the denizenship of the politically powerless is particularly bothersome because liberal-democratic systems lack incentives to promote their rights. We have singled out the specificity and quaintness of the argumentative strategy employed to sustain non-national disenfranchisement. It differs from other argumentations in favour of disenfranchisement because it is not framed in derogatory terms and shifts the burden of proof from the state over to the individual.

  • A Reflection on Material Citizenship

    • Authors: Lorenzo Grifone Baglioni
      Abstract: The concept of citizenship is central to European history and has great resonance. It does however bear the weight an ‘original sin’, its derivation from the idea of the nation: a relationship worth reviewing in the light of the dynamics of present-day society. Furthermore, the polysemic nature of citizenship can di use its meaning and reduce e ective analysis. With this in mind, the present paper, after having explored the origins of citizenship and reviewed its development, proposes a de nition in material terms. The question of status, pre-eminent in the juridical approach, is of lesser importance in the present sociological interpretation of citizenship, concentrating as it does on individual practices. Rights allow the individual access to certain social resources (which ones?) but capitals determines the quantity of social resources the person may draw on (how many?). Together, rights and capitals shape the capabilities that each person converts into functionings in daily life – that is into the practices of citizenship, but only in those cases when the individual’s behaviour is compatible with the norms of the community.

  • Giovani e pratiche di cittadinanza. Un’esperienza milanese

    • Authors: Maria Grazia Gambardella
      Abstract: Reporting the results of an empirical survey carried out with qualitative methods and referring to the Territorial Plan for Youth (2013-2014) implemented by the City of Milan to promote citizenship and participation, the article focuses on some new citizenship practices of young people in Milan, the ways and forms through which they reconstruct belonging, participation (political and social), and the public sphere. Citizenship at the same time, shows how the municipal institution, supported by the third and fourth sectors, can positively answer the questions of youth citizenship, recognizing young people as legitimate interlocutors to express their interests and needs.

  • La politica è vecchia e la cittadinanza è giovane? Riflessioni sul
           rapporto tra giovani e politica a partire da un’analisi delle
           rappresentazioni sociali della cittadinanza

    • Authors: Daniela Trucco
      Abstract: The article explores the relationship between young people and politics, through the lenses of their social representations of citizenship. Young people seem to discourage political commitment and to promote a more informal and intermittent kind of commitment, justified on ethical arguments rather than belongingness. The article put in perspective the thesis of a young depoliticed citizenship and push forward the depoliticizing properties of the idea of citizenship. Grounded on the refusal of ascribed memberships and on the valorization of individual qualities and responsibilities, youth representations of citizenship contrast with their perceptions of politics ‘as it is’, sharply distinguished from politics ‘as it should be’. Citizenship is shaped on the same features distinguishing ideal from actual politics but distinguishing also young from old generations.

  • Immigrati e cittadinanza. Una questione di accoglienza?

    • Authors: Simona Gozzo
      Abstract: This study analyzes the relationship between theoretical models of European integration and inclusion or exclusion of immigrants. The main hypothesis is that relations are key in understanding and explaining differences between material and formal integration, including propensity towards social involvement and focusing on the acquisition of citizenship. Data collected in an Italian local context are applied for an in-depth analysis.

  • Pratiche di cittadinanza. L’associazionismo migrante femminile nel

    • Authors: Rosa Gatti
      Abstract: The paper re-articulates the relation between immigration and citizenship in a gender perspective. The analysis of citizenship practices exercised by migrant women in the local context allows to make visible their mobilization and participation to the public sphere. The analysis, based on interviews with the presidents of the migrants associations in Campania, explores the reasons whereby migrants women undertake participatory activities within their associations, the ways in which they move from informal networks to formal associations and take leadership, as well as barriers and factors that can help to overcome them. The actions of migrant women engaged in the voluntary sector show their capacity to intervene politically and socially, even when they are not recognized as citizens, challenging our idea of citizenship and showing the growing importance of the practices of citizenship.

  • Italy and Lega Nord: Stories of Communities, National (Dis)Integration and
           Spaces of (Restricted) Citizenship

    • Authors: Florence Di Bonaventura
      Abstract: This paper focuses on the conception of citizenship of the Italian political party Lega Nord. To that aim, we consider citizenship in terms of belonging to the political community, which thus also defines the boundaries of exclusion. In our approach, citizenship is a structuring dimension of building a political community and it has two components: the State and the nation. By situating these concepts (State, nation and citizenship) in a theoretical-historical framework, we enlighten the conceptions of the Lega Nord in relation to each of them, by positioning them in long term socio-historical dynamics in Italy.

  • Un lungo percorso a ostacoli. Il difficile cammino dei non cittadini verso
           l’integrazione e la cittadinanza

    • Authors: Enrico Gargiulo
      Abstract: In current Italy, the path of non-citizens’ inclusion has been characterised by the continuous encounter with legal and administrative barriers. The paper, using a variegated set of methods and research strategies (documental analysis; critical discourse analysis; key informants interviews; administrative data analysis), shows the results of a research program focused, on one hand, on the policies of exclusion at local level and, on the other hand, on the policies of integration at national level, analyses the ways with which migrants’ obstacle course has been structured and the reasons why it is so arduous. In Italy, especially after 2005, the institutional vision of immigrants’ integration has deeply changed. Now, the idea of integration is related to a differentialist vision of immigrants’ inclusion and to several forms (explicit or implicit; visible or invisible) of institutional discrimination. These forms have caused an increase of civic stratification and, as a consequence, a ‘precarisation of belongings’.

  • The Controversy about Education for Citizenship: The Contested Limits of
           Tolerance in Spain

    • Authors: Flora Burchianti, Ricard Zapata-Barrero
      Abstract: Education is of crucial importance to ensure social cohesion and progress in a given society. Even if the content of citizenship education has been a matter of debate in several European countries, it has taken a singular development in Spain. The important controversy that has been triggered by its introduction in secondary school curriculum is a matter of interrogation: Why did Spain react differently than other European countries? The argument put forward in this article is that education for citizenship reveals the impossibility for Spain to provide a stabilised and consensual definition of national values and identity, precisely because the country is characterised by unresolved questions about its territorial and national diversity, and exemplifies multiple diversity challenges. After providing a European contextualisation of questions of religious and values teaching in Spain, we present a chronology of the controversy and then analyse the public debate in terms of limits to tolerance. We will show that the question of the shared public values highlighted by this conflict is still unsolved and remain non-consensual in the Spanish society.

  • Why Do Some Denizens Reject Naturalisation? The Case of Long-term
           Immigrants in Poland

    • Authors: Katarzyna Andrejuk
      Abstract: The article analyses reasons and context of the decision not to naturalise, made by long-term immigrants in Poland. The text encompasses description of the legal context of naturalisation in Poland, statistical data about long-term residents from various diasporas and number of citizenship acquisitions. The article focuses on four case studies of migrants from the United Kingdom, Lithuania, Vietnam and India in order to examine and interpret the declared reasons of the lack of naturalisation. In general, three types of reasons are distinguished: psychological (lack of sufficient sense of belonging), bureaucratic (costs, length and complicated character of the procedure) and legal-political (prohibition of dual citizenship in the country of origin, possession of a status of a permanent resident).

  • Friend or Foe? Attitudes Towards Immigration from Other European Union

    • Authors: Justyna Salamońska
      Abstract: Over the decades Europe has become a destination for different groups of migrants, including mobile citizens from the European Union Member States. At the same time European citizens have become more mobile with a growing number of cross-border practices connecting them to places and people abroad through migration, travel, social networks or consumption practices. The main contribution of this study is in analysing to what extent processes of Europeanization, at an individual and country level, matter for sentiments towards immigration. Data suggest that social globalization processes may produce a sense of threat, but individual transnationalism seems to provide a remedy against prejudice.

  • Social Citizenship in the Context of Europeanization and Growing
           Inequalities: An Empirical Contribution to the Theoretical Debate

    • Authors: Laura Leonardi, Gemma Scalise
      Abstract: The political and economic crisis of Europe and the austerity programs within EU countries have brought back to center the issues of inequality and social justice in Europe that during the Twentieth century have been addressed through the institutionalization of social citizenship. Europeanization and globalization challenge social cohesion and alters the basic institutions on which social citizenship was constructed in welfare societies. Starting from the results of an empirical study, the aim of this article is to give new impulses to the theoretical reflection on social citizenship as a distinct issue, although related with the concept of citizenship. The focus of the analysis is on members of transnational civil society organizations and their ideas and practices enhancing new forms of a more inclusive and sustainable social citizenship. Conclusions discuss how social bonds and solidarity are reframed transnationally across national, regional, European and global borders, and the implications of this process for the reformulation of the concept of social citizenship.

  • Cittadinanza globale versus (dis)ordine mondiale. Un’analisi critica

    • Authors: Marta Picchio
      Abstract: For a long time, the reflection on the theme of global citizenship has interested institutions and intellectuals committed to give answers to humanitarian crises. The primary purpose of this essay is to give back a realistic image of rights’ denial. The second purpose of this essay is to inquiry about the dynamics which give rise to global inequalities. At last our aim is to show the first real occurring signs of change in the global geopolitical panorama. The most evident result of this change is the more and more important role of the continental and supranational unions which are helping us to build the global citizenship; the second element regards the activities concerning the Global Citizenship Education (gced); the third change has to do with the massive programs and donations from the nonprofit organization (npo); the fourth and last evidence is all what concerns the newborn Fourth Industrial Revolution and the potential of technological innovations.

  • La sfida delle civiltà sulla democrazia e i diritti umani

    • Authors: Vittorio Cotesta
      Abstract: The diffusion of human rights and democracy in the entire world is an ambiguous phenomenon: human rights and democracy are differently conceived in each culture and civilization. In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights human rights are qualities of human beings independently of their race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. In the Universal Islamic Declaration of Human Rights “Human rights […] are firmly rooted in the belief that God, and God alone, is the Law Giver and the Source of all human rights”. In the so called African renaissance there is an autonomous foundation of human rights, they are conceived as the best expression of Akan and Ubuntu culture. In the Confucian Renaissance there is a new proposition of Confucianism as a philosophical vision of the world and also a new perspective on the human rights. The truth is that cultural pluralism is an universal phenomenon: only the dialogue can guarantee peace and order.

  • Democratic Citizenship and Its Changes as Empirical Phenomenon

    • Authors: Giovanni Moro
      Abstract: The article aims to contribute to the empirical approach towards the study of democratic citizenship, while avoiding both reductionist and all-embracing uses of the concept. It deals with three issues: the identification of the phenomenon, the observation of the dynamics of change, and the assessment of the ongoing evolutions of citizenship.

  • On the Social Morphogenesis of Citizenship: A Relational Approach

    • Authors: Pierpaolo Donati
      Abstract: The paper deals with the issue of the mutations in citizenship as they emerge from the crisis of the nation-state and the speeding up of the globalization processes. Within modernity, nation-states have put peculiar socio-cultural identities and larger solidarities in deep conflict, so that no real common citizenship could be achieved. With the advent of globalization and multiculturalism, we witness the fading away of statist citizenship due to a multiplicity of factors. By resorting to the morphogenetic approach, the author tries to explain why and how a transmodern (societal) citizenship is emerging, which changes the old forms of citizenship. The new forms of citizenship stem from civil society rather than from the nation-state. New interdependences and links between ‘local’ identities and ‘broader’ solidarities are building up a post-lib/lab citizenship, based upon unprecedented relational practices in dealing with social issues. The morphogenetic processes generate di erent modalities of con guring citizenship in different contexts. From a sociological viewpoint, a new societal semantics is emerging, according to which citizenship becomes a complex of rights and duties not only of individuals but also of social groups capable of reconciling self-management practices and collective goals. The name of this new game is societal citizenship, one that promotes civil and social autonomies through which citizenship can be pursued as a relational good.
