The second chapter argues for the importance of decentring citizenship, in particular disentangling the taken-for-granted connections with states and nations that have dominated both the theory and practice of citizenship. This leads to the exploration of a wider variety of actors in the making of citizenship, the changing configuration of political institutions and agents, and the contested politics of scale associated with them.

Keywords:   decentering citizenship, citizenship theory, citizenship practice, states, nations and citizenship, nationality, politics of scale
