Mobilising Affects: Politics of Security and the Withdrawal of Citizenship

Project description

Denaturalisation laws under the microscope

Naturalisation is the legal procedure by which a country makes an immigrant a citizen and equates him or her with his/her rights and obligations with other citizens of the state. Denaturalisation is the opposite. It’s when a country revokes the citizenship of a naturalised immigrant. The EU-funded Affects project will study denaturalisation laws enacted as a security measure in Europe, with a comparative focus on policies in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The project will consider whether denaturalisation endangers democratic citizenship. It will also consider the emotional politics involved. Through archival research and critical discourse analysis, the project’s findings will make a crucial contribution to security studies in which citizenship remains an under-researched question.
