Closing the first, introductory, part of the book, this chapter presents some of the main ways in which citizenship and constitutions / constitutional law can and do iterate with each other at the top level (i.e. via the texts of the constitution and of constitutional law and in respect of constitutional principles and conventions). The chapter then places these issues into a broader context, exploring issues such as the legacies of colonialism, understandings of citizenship outside the Global North and the so-called civic/ethnic divide in citizenship. The analysis contests some of the presuppositions that lie behind the idea that citizenship of a state could operate as the sole or even central model of citizenship.

Keywords:   constitutional citizenship, constitution law, colonialism, civic/ethnic divide, state
