The Citizenship Lecture series addresses recent developments in research on citizenship related topics. The summer and winter sessions of the lecture series are designed as a permanent discussion platform for the exchange between scholars and students of the field. The lectures are focused on the connection of the four key topics of the work at the centre to a broader scientific discourse.
The lecture considers the nexus between cities, citizenship and civilization in western political thought as well as the often neglected political dimension of ‚successful' or ‚sustainable' city rankings. Acknowledging that citizenship is indeed the cement of the city requires a comparative sociological approach to different cities in different societies, enabling a thorough understanding of the specific conditions and manifestations of political extremism and its influence on policies on migration, multiculturalism and citizenship.
