Special Issue Citizenship Studies

“Claiming citizenship rights through the body multiple”

Sabine Netz , Sarah Lempp, Kristine Krause & Katharina Schramm

What have affirmative action policies, categorization of care needs,
plastic surgery, forensic identification of dead bodies and age
assessments of refugees in common? They all determine recognition and
access to resources and rights via the body. This special issue of
Citizenship Studies – edited by Sabine Netz, Sarah Lempp, Kristine
Krause and Katharina Schramm – shows how situationally-bound elements in
relations, space and time matter for a person’s access to rights and
resources – and hence draws attention to blind spots in specific
categorization practices.
