Citizenship, Migration, and Uncertainty

Citizenship, Migration, and Uncertainty

(p.13) 1 Citizenship, Migration, and Uncertainty
Uncertain Citizenship

Megan Ryburn

University of California Press

This chapter expands on the conceptual framing of the book, bringing together literature from political philosophy, on citizenship in Latin America, and from migration studies. It traces the origins of citizenship, examines critiques of the classic liberal interpretation, and explores iterations of citizenship in Latin American contexts. It then turns to similarly outline how interpretations of the processes lived by migrants have changed over time, also providing a brief account of migration in and from Bolivia and to Chile. This serves to enable the final discussion, which draws together perspectives on citizenship and migration with work on uncertainty to develop the twin concepts of transnational spaces of citizenship and uncertain citizenship.

Keywords:   citizenship, transnational social spaces, intersectionality, uncertainty, Latin America
