Bridget Anderson, COMPAS Deputy Director, has produced a new Working Paper, What does ‘The Migrant’ tell us about the (Good) Citizen? The paper explores the tensions existing around the notion of citizenship and its effect on state inclusion or exclusion, and what they tell us about the nature of citizenship as a formal status, and about the nation as an imagined ‘community of value’, that is, status in the sense of value, worth and honour. It also examines naturalisation processes as attempts to match formal citizenship with the community of value. It argues for an analytical lens that enables us to consider the exclusion of non-citizens (migrants and refugees) alongside the exclusion of failed citizens (such as (ex)-prisoners and welfare dependents).
