Concepts of citizenship in Germany and other European countries raise questions about the construction of belonging and the practical consequences of membership programs for political, social, economic, and cultural participation. The conference is devoted to the question of what citizenship in Europe of the 21st century can mean and which concepts of citizenship are currently guiding political policy and promise greater political inclusion.
