Respatializing Social Citizenship and Security Among Dual Citizens in the Lebanese Diaspora
Presented by Dr. Daiva Stasiulis
Our understanding of social citizenship is haunted by the ghost of British sociologist T.H. Marshall and challenged by the ongoing neoliberal reversal and shrinking of social rights. Citizenship and migration scholarship is increasingly examining how people act within and across different geographic spaces to construct their own social and ontological security. Based on interviews with dual nationals conducted in three countries – Australia, Canada and Lebanon – Daiva Stasiulis reveals whether and how the dual citizenship status and embedded agency of these subjects in multiple locales is utilized to build their own nation-bound and borderspanning social safety and security nets, combining resources from heterogeneous citizenship regimes.
A light reception will follow the lecture event.
