The third chapter builds on the decentring work to argue for the heterogeneity of citizenship’s sites, settings, spaces and scales. In all these ways, the chapter takes as its starting point Etienne Balibar’s metaphor of citizenship as always ‘imparfaite’ (unfinished), as an object of social and political desire that is always ‘under construction’ (en travaux).

Keywords:   imagining citizenship, communities, imparfaite unfinished, under construction en travaux
