Shukaitis, Stevphen (2007) Citizenship Despite the State? imagination, incorporation, and the evolution of the global Sphere. Perspectives on Anarchist Theory 11(1): 78-83. www - - -> Global citizenship is a concept frequently mentioned though rarely theorized in any sustained manner. Given the nation-centered focus of many of the social sciences and traditions of social struggle, particularly sociology and Marxist-inspired politics, and the uncertain and schizophrenic character of thought on the all-encompassing, ever ambiguous processes of globalization, this perhaps is not so surprising. The implicit “stateness” found within assumptions that cultural processes correspond to national and state boundaries (or at least are ultimately describable and contained within a state- based framework) makes it difficult even to discuss, let alone theorize, concepts outside such a framework. We simply don’t have the necessary concepts.
