21st February - Talking Citizenship

Updated: Mar 2

Location: The Pilgrim Pub, 34 Pilgrim St, Liverpool L1 9HB

Time: Friday 21st February @7pm - 9pm


Across the world, from Britain to the USA and from the Balkans to Myanmar, the meaning of citizenship has moved to the centre of political debate. The Liverpool Salon invites you to a discussion of the various facets of citizenship and how they differently shape and reshape people’s lives. As a legal category, is citizenship too thin to provide a sense of belonging to a political community? As an expression of communal and political solidarities, does citizenship provide a strong enough defense of civil rights and protections? 


From anger at the persecution of Windrush citizens  to fraught debates about immigration controls, it appears that most of us believe that being a citizen goes beyond constitutional  status, passports, paperwork and identity documents. With the weakening of national solidarities, is citizenship being replaced by individuated, consumerist and cultural identities? Or does it continue to be built through political solidarities and struggle? And what of those seeking to become citizens? How can we expect new citizens to integrate into political communities with such blurred boundaries?
