This chapter explores new meanings—and attendant tensions—of citizenship in an era of globalization. It begins with an analysis of the concept of citizenship within the human rights framework and proceeds by considering a realistic formulation of citizenship in a globalized world. In particular, it discusses citizenship as it relates to trade and human rights in the context of globalization and argues that the concept of citizenship must be redefined in the globalization context by using as its foundation the critically re/formed, developed, expanded, and transformed international human rights vision. The chapter also examines the impact of transnational corporations on economic citizenship. Finally, it highlights the importance of human transmigrations in connecting communities and memberships as well as achieving cross-border solidarities based on identity.

Keywords:   citizenship, globalization, human rights, trade, transnational corporations, economic citizenship, human transmigrations
