Citizenship: Identification and the Global

  • Roy Smith
Part of the St Antony’s Series book series


Few would deny that a broad array of processes have contributed to a growing awareness of ‘global’ issues. These processes range from increasing environmental degradation to the promotion of satellite broadcasting. However, it is far from clear how the recognition of such issues impacts on senses of identity and the concept of citizenship as dealt with in the traditional terms of the politics of the nation-state system. This chapter will consider how various global issues present a challenge to national governments. It will also look at the ways in which national identities relate to these issues and the possibility of developing a sense of global citizenship.
