In today’s highly mobile world, migration and citizenship regimes defined by nation states play a vital part in shaping social and political participation for a growing slice of the population. This research area investigates the mechanisms by which migrants are granted or refused access to citizens’ rights. In this context, researchers are interested in the roles of political and ideological considerations, of the practices of local bureaucracies and of migrants’ own strategies, and how far such factors mutually influence each other.
