The concept of nationalism conjures up feelings of belonging and allegiance, togetherness and protective boundaries, but what of alienation and xenophobia, immigration, and asylum? How do we gauge social and political conflict in an age of national and transnational allegiances and identities? This special issue of WSQ questions what it means to be a citizen in a world haunted by terrorism, racial tension, and gender and class exclusion.
