Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapportKapitel i bokPeer review


Citizenship is essential for our ideas about equality, social justice, and
democracy. This is relevant when we think of local, national, or regional forms
of citizenship, as well as think about human rights and global citizenship.
Gender is important for thinking about citizenship since claims for gender
equality and social justice are central aims of democratic processes. Gender
and gender identity relate to other categories, such as sexual orientation,
‘race’, class, religion, nationality, and indigeneity. Issues relating to gender
and citizenship have been, are, and will continue to be politically contested by
a diversity of actors within civil society and political institutions in societies
around the world. These issues have engaged feminist researchers situated in
the Global North as well as in the Global South. The chapter aims to give an
overview over influential theoretical, analytical, and normative approaches; key
concepts; topics; and innovative research in contemporary scholarship about
gender and citizenship, with a special focus on intersectional and transnational
approaches to gender and citizenship.
