PUBLI : Lorenzo Barrault-Stella et Thomas Douniès (Dir.), Dossier « Citizenship as a Tool of Government in Europe », Politics & Policy, vol. 49, n° 4, 2021


The state partic­i­pates in shaping and trans­mit­ting citi­zen­ship. From a Euro­pean outlook, this special Issue of Poli­tics & Policy focuses on the role of public policy, according to a compar­a­tive and multi­sec­to­rial perspec­tive. The special Issue orig­i­nated in a Panel held on September 4, 2019 at the Euro­pean Consor­tium of Polit­ical Research’s General Confer­ence, at the Univer­sity of Wroclaw, Poland. The arti­cles in this special Issue draw from a plurality of methods, from socio­his­tory to policy ethnog­raphy, and analyze how the state, in the concrete concep­tion and imple­men­ta­tion of its action, is a producer of social cate­go­riza­tions deter­mining the legit­i­mate contours of citi­zen­ship. Alto­gether, the case studies in this issue allow us to scru­ti­nize the govern­ment of and by citi­zen­ship, mean­while iden­ti­fying discrep­an­cies and invari­ants in Europe.
