Immigration and Citizenship in the Global City

Thursday 7 February, 6.30pm
Old Theatre, Old Building

On Thursday 7 February, Professor Saskia Sassen will be speaking on Immigration and Citizenship in the Global City at LSE.

Globalisation and new information technologies have contributed to make urban space a newly invigorated political space and to transnationalise citizenship. Globalisation is also contributing to fears that lead to a re-nationalising of immigration policy. These contradictory trends enable new types of politics around citizenship and immigration.

Saskia Sassen is Centennial Professor at LSE and Professor of Sociology at Chicago University. An internationally renowned scholar, she has published widely on globalisation and the city.

This event is free and open to all. No ticket is required.
