Migrants, teachers and transnational belonging


Wednesday 19 April 2017 13.30-15.30

What does it take to belong? Citizenship regulation and transnational realities

Marta Bivand Erdal, The Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO)

In this presentation I discuss how people’s transnational ties and increasing diversity are (or are not) reflected in contemporary citizenship regulation in Europe, including requirements for obtaining citizenship, dual citizenship and the loss of citizenship. I juxtapose this regulatory landscape with individuals’ experiences of belonging, often involving transnational ties and multiple loyalties, drawing on interviews with non-migrants and migrants in Norway. The presentation is based on ongoing research within the Governing and Experiencing Citizenship in Multicultural Scandinavia project, funded by the Research Council of Norway.

Citizenship and language learning: what can we learn from migrant teachers?
