This book examines the uncertain relationship between the citizen and the state in the context of the 21st century governance and administrative concerns. Although an issue that dates back hundreds of years, today's increasing role of the surveillance state into the daily lives of citizens undermines democratic freedoms and liberties. In this context, different meanings and experiences of citizenship are examined. Neoliberal economics are also explored in terms of their reinforcement of different meanings and interpretations of nationalism and patriotism within the civic polity. Because it facilitates the integration of different ideas and identities, cosmopolitanism is offered as an alternative ideal to the traditional notion of citizenship. By emphasizing transparency and inclusiveness, this book attracts original contribution from an international spread of authors who, while pointing out the critical challenges facing citizenship in the contemporary state, also offer crucial pathways for debating as well as addressing future concerns. From illuminating theoretical discourses to practical case and field studies, this book offers an engaging portrait not only of the challenges but also of the remedies necessary to govern the new administrative state in a 21st century world that faces an increasing prospect of fused or amorphous borders, issues of authority, identity, individual entitlement, collective governance, and an ennobled vision of a future world we would want to leave for generations yet to come.
