Exploring the Margins of Citizenship: 12 November 2010

Posted by mjs76 at Oct 28, 2010 10:15 AM |
Our Department of Politics and International Relations is joining forces with the Contemporary Political Theory Research Group at Royal Holloway, University of London for a one-day conference on 'The Margins of Citizenship'

The object of the conference, which will be held in London on Friday 12 November, is to “reflect upon the margins of citizenship, investigating the nature of partial citizenship, whether it can be justified, and what it implies for the concept of citizenship itself, as well as allied ideas such as social justice and rights.”

Dr Philip Cook (pictured) will speak on ‘Child-Citizenship, Fairness and Marginalisation’ while Virginia Mantouvalou will respond to a presentation on A Human Right against Social Deprivation. Other speakers are from Manchester, Southampton, York, Oxford, the LSA and Royal Holloway itself.

The event takes place at Royal Holloway’s Central London Campus, 2 Gower Street, London, WC1E 6DP (the entrance is on Montague Place). Attendance is free but spaces are limited so please register in advance with Lisa Dacunha (Lisa.Dacunha@rhul.ac.uk).
