In a world marked by increasing globalization, transnational migration, and political, religious, and identity-based conflict, how should we understand the concept of "citizenship," and what role should this concept play in our thinking about questions of political membership and civic responsibility? Should our central understanding of citizenship remain state-based, or should we adopt more global or cosmopolitan conceptions of citizenship? What are the virtues that define, or ought to define, the good citizen? The purpose of this year’s theme is to examine various issues surrounding "the ethics of citizenship."
