Human rights and citizenship in the ‘post-welfare’ state

7 July 2011 

Henry Thomas Room, LondonMet, 166-220 Holloway Road, London N7 8DB

Notions of citizenship in advanced welfare states increasingly emphasise conditionality,
contractual relationships, selectivity and exclusivity in relation to immigrants, asylum seekers.
and other social.‘outsiders’. What is the role of human rights in framing more inclusive and
universal notions of social citizenship in a ‘post-welfare’ state?
