Abstract and Keywords
This chapter focuses on the condition of persons inhabiting liberal democratic states in which they lack the legal status of citizenship. Notwithstanding the great variations among categories and across jurisdictions, it is possible to distill a profile of the rights and liabilities of status non-citizens in broad terms and this chapter offers one such profile. It does so, however, by situating the subject in a broader discussion of what status non-citizenship consists in analytically, and of how this status relates to other modes of citizenship denial or marginalization.
Linda Bosniak is a Professor at Rutgers Law School–Camden. She has written widely on the subjects of citizenship, alienage, and national membership, and is currently completing a book on these themes.
