Panel Discussion: Citizenship, Belonging and Nation-States in the 21st Century. Nicole Stokes-DuPass and Ramona Fruja, editors of this book, will lead a panel discussion about the major themes of the book. Specifically, they will articulate why nation-states still matter in citizenship studies. The authors assert that nation-states continue to hold the unique capacity to determine who has the right to have rights. We also plan to discuss how states actively shape the assimilation outcomes and experiences of belonging among the populations who reside within its borders.
