has become decadent. We need to think afresh. This book helps that
– The Rt Hon Clare Short MP
This wide-ranging, multidisciplinary collection of original papers explores the link between globalisation, citizenship and the war on terror. Ideas from sociology, criminology, political science and development studies are incorporated into the contributors’ examination of the nature of globalisation and the war on terror. Using theoretical frameworks, analysing current issues and reflecting on existing literature and past events, they illustrate how the processes of globalisation and the war on terror are shaping and defining citizenship both globally and within nation states.

Full table of contents
This book explores globalisation and the war on terror in a world that is becoming increasingly and significantly polarised and in which dialogue is undermined. The authors contend that citizenship does not obey a static definition, and that its meaning is located in changing economic, social and political contexts. Equally, civil, political and social rights are continually being politically defined. The war on terror has, the book argues, influenced issues of civil liberties and prioritised the need for ‘security’ over and above the protection of human rights: it has redefined the meaning of the rule of law.
This wide-ranging collection of original papers explores the link between globalisation, citizenship and the war on terror. Drawing on principles and ideas from their individual areas of expertise, the contributors illustrate how the processes of globalisation and the war on terror are shaping and defining citizenship both globally and within nation states. They go on to examine the nature of globalisation and the war on terror via theoretical frameworks, analysis of current issues and by reflecting on existing literature and past events.
Seeking to connect the war on terror with issues of racism, resisitance, global poverty and forms of organised violence and social control, this book will provide a stimulating, thought-provoking read for scholars of a wider range of research fields including international business, politics, criminology, sociology and development studies.
