Migrations and Mobilities - Citizenship, Borders, and Gender

In an increasingly globalized world, the movement of peoples across national borders is posing unprecedented challenges, for the people involved as well as for the places to which they travel and their countries of origin. Citizenship is now a topic in focus around the world but much of that discussion takes place without sufficient attention to the women, men, and children, in and out of families, whose statuses and treatments depend upon how countries view their arrival. As essays in this volume detail, both the practices and theories of citizenship need to be reappraised in light of the array of persons and of twentieth-century commitments to their dignity and equality.

Migrations and Mobilities uniquely situates gender in the context of ongoing, urgent conversations about globalization, citizenship, and the meaning of borders. Following an introductory essay by editors Seyla Benhabib and Judith Resnik that addresses the parameters and implications of gendered migration, the interdisciplinary contributors consider a wide range of issues, from workers` rights to children`s rights, from theories of the nation-state and federalism to obligations under transnational human rights conventions. Together, the essays in this path-breaking collection force us to consider the pivotal role that gender should play in reconceiving the nature of citizenship in the contemporary, transnational world.

Contributors: Selya Benhabib, Jacqueline Bhabha, Linda Bosniak, Catherine Dauvergne, Talia Inlender, Vicki C. Jackson, David Jacobson, Linda K. Kerber, Audrey Macklin, Angela Means, Valentine M. Moghadam, Patrizia Nanz, Aihwa Ong, Cynthia Patterson, Judith Resnik, and Sarah K. van Walsum.

"Benhabib and Resnik have succeeded admirably in their aspiration to reorient the lively debate concerning globalization, borders, migration and citizenship . . . .’ With the appearance of this volume, the debate will never be the same. It is an essential resource for serious students of the subject." (Peter H. Schuck, Simeon E. Baldwin Professor, Yale Law School)

"Crossing disciplinary boundaries and navigating the comparative and transnational frontiers of migration, this extraordinary volume displaces the traditional male-centered perception of immigration without falling into an essentializing and unitary vision of the world’s diverse female migrants. Topical, timely, and well organized, the editors are to be congratulated for having assembled a collection that will undoubtedly stimulate a lasting debate in the field." (Ayelet Shachar, author of The Birthright Lottery: Citizenship and Global Inequality)
