Migration and Citizenship

Migration and Citizenship

(p.1) 1 Migration and Citizenship
Citizens in Motion

Elaine Lynn-Ee Ho

Stanford University Press

This chapter considers the way that multidirectional migration flows are transforming national citizenship and its territorial premises. Eschewing the tendency to study emigration and immigration as discrete fields, it proposes an approach that brings together seemingly distinct emigration, immigration, and re-migration trends under an analytical framework known as contemporaneous migration. This approach illuminates how citizenship formations in different national contexts are increasingly drawn into a constellation of relations, situating the migration and citizenship politics of national societies in a trans-territorial context. The chapter contextualizes developments in Chinese emigration and immigration to China in wider theoretical debates on emigration and diaspora, citizenship and territory, immigrant integration and re-migration, and ethnicity and co-ethnicity. It signals the multifaceted aspects of migration that interconnect China with migration sites globally, changing citizenship norms and practices.

Keywords:   alterity, Chinese diaspora, citizenship and belonging, co-ethnicity, fraternity, interethnic relations, life course, migrant rights, migration and temporality, territory and territoriality
