The Politics of Not/Belonging: Making Sense of Post-Dayton Exclusions
This chapter draws on personal narratives to tease out how the women I interviewed make sense of the ethnicization of belonging institutionalized through the system of consociationalism. Attending to sensations, views and memories this chapter foregrounds subjective and diverse experiences shaping women’s citizenship which are often overlooked in mainstream accounts, as well as in feminist analyses of citizenship that stay at the level of institutions.
