The first chapter argues for the need to recentre citizenship, stressing its necessary connection to culture, politics and powder. In particular, this involves disputing the hold of universalising conceptions of citizenship that seek to establish its general, proper or correct meaning. In other words, contextualisation is explored not as an exercise in exposing the empirical diversity of citizenship regimes and forms, but as a necessary and required move in theorising citizenship.
