Citizenship and Borders: The Meaning and Cost of ‘Belonging’ through the Lenses of the ‘Public’ and ‘Private’
June 13 @ 9:30 am – 5:00 pm
Joint Seminar with a Guest Scholar Organised by the ACCPIL with the Support of CISRUL
The joint seminar shall focus on the concept of citizenship, its different faces, meaning and places within various areas of law, as well as relevance to selected legal and non-legal implications for global governance, among others. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on deeper questions concerning the notions of citizenship and belonging as well as deconstruct certain status quo assumptions throughout interactive sessions. The two panellists leading the first part of the panels from the floor will aim to prompt reflective thoughts and different angles of looking at the same issue, including the practical policy-based perspective and the more philosophical approach to relevant theoretical elements. The objective is to identify selected clashes and tensions in the understanding as well as the application of the concept of citizenship within policy and governance as well as various areas of law – thus challenging the orthodox focus on the ‘public’ side of citizenship and exploring views and perceptions on the meaning and role of citizenship by fellow scholars from the ‘private’ realm, including PIL and family law.
