Citizenship and the State in the Middle East: Approaches and Applications (Contemporary Issues in the Middle East)

Citizenship and the State in the Middle East: Approaches and Applications (Contemporary Issues in the Middle East) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a response to processes of globalization, regional integration and ethnic conflicts, the study of citizenship has regained new interest among social scientists and legal experts. This approach focuses on the relationship between the state and the people — as individuals and collectivities, citizens and non-citizens — living within its borders. Citizenship defines the terms of rights and obligations in a society, regulates political participation and access to public goods and properties. Together with its companion volume, Gender and Citizenship (forthcoming in Fall 2000), this book represents the first systematic critical attempt to interpret the complex nature of Middle East politics from a citizenship perspective. The work provides both theoretical contributions and case studies, and includes a significant section on Israel and Palestine.

Book News Annotation:

Sixteen contributions provide a systematic critical examination of the complex nature of Middle East politics from a citizenship perspective. Topics include the citizenship approach from the perspective of both social sciences and international human rights law, the applicability of the approach in a Middle Eastern context, and Lebanon and Kuwait. The second part of the volume focuses entirely on Israel and Palestine.
