Citizenship in an Age of Globalisation: The Cosmopolitan Citizen?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


To be global is to be cosmopolitan: that is, a national of the world and a citizen of multiple states. Globalisation has made the international political economy more flexible to the acceptance of dual or even multiple nationality. Indeed, Australia is one of an increasing number of nation-states that accepts dual and multiple citizenship and nationality. Nonetheless, contradictions and tensions remain. The incipient flexibility of citizenship and nationality has regressed in response to the threat of terrorism. Hence, we need a progressive citizenship project that includes the dual and multiple citizen and national as a necessary and desirable feature of a globalised world.
