The Performative Power of Translocal Citizenship


In topical debates on migration and global, world and cosmopolitan citizenship, the article introduces the anarchist idea of translocal citizenship. With its vision of communitarian nomadism, the concept aims at an idea and praxis of municipalized citizenship that is constituted beyond the nation-state, sometimes in opposition to it, but always surpasses the parochial forms of political community that make global connectedness impossible.

KEY WORDS: citizenship, democracy, anarchism, alter-globalization movement, globalization
