This chapter provides an overview of the current literature on biocitizenship. It begins by synthesizing the three dominant models of biocitizenship in earlier work: as collective redress for bodily injury by the state; as a mode of biopolitical governance; and as a form of health activism. It then offers critiques of normative models of biocitizenship, and concludes with a brief discussion of each of the book’s chapters.
