Kleh Lecture: The End of Citizenship

  • Starts: 12:45 pm on Thursday, September 13, 2018
  • Ends: 2:00 pm on Thursday, September 13, 2018
Citizenship is under stress and international law is a contributing factor. At one end, emerging norms point to a right of access to citizenship and the application of non-discrimination principles, pressing states to extend citizenship to marginalized populations. At the other, international law protects the growing phenomenon of investor citizenship, in which states put citizenship up for sale. Both developments will accelerate the decoupling of citizenship from the social solidarities it once represented, without which citizenship cannot bear the weight of the liberal state.
