New Book on Citizenship and Migration

Apr 15, 2013

"Citizenship and Migration in the Era of Globalization" is a new book by Markus Pohlmann, Jonghoe Yang and Jong-Hee Jong. It is part of the Cluster's book series "Transcultural Research – Heidelberg Studies on Asia and Europe in a Global Context".

Addressing the problem of changing nature of national citizenship, "Citizenship and Migration in the Era of Globalization" helps to understand the flow of people and ideas between Asia and Europe.

In an age of globalization there is frequent migration across national borders, resulting in a reconsideration of the notion, practice and social institution of national citizenship. Addressing this phenomenon, the book focuses on the exchange between, and responses, of Korea and Germany.

In particular, the book deals extensively with citizenship in Korea where the concept of citizenship is young, and thus the study of citizenship is relatively scarce. This book may be the first of its kind, bringing together eminent Korean and German scholars to analyse various aspects of citizenship in Korea.

It is hoped that it will contribute to scholarship in the fields of citizenship and migration and to an understanding of the flow of people and ideas between Asia and Europe.

The book "Citizenship and Migration in the Era of Globalization" - 226 pages - was published in April 2013 by the science book publishing company Springer as part of the Cluster’s book series "Transcultural Research – Heidelberg Studies on Asia and Europe in a Global Context". The series presents peer-reviewed books by members of the Cluster as well as scholars from both historical and empirical disciplines who are working on new emerging fields that cross existing disciplinary boundaries.

Markus Pohlmann is Professor at the Max-Weber-Institute for Soziology at Heidelberg University. Jonghoe Yang is Professor of Sociology at Sungkyunkwan University, Seoul, Korea. Jong-hee Lee is a former member of the Cluster's research project A1 "Citizenship".
