Abstract

This paper brings a relational perspective to studies of citizenship beyond national borders. Analysing the responses of 16 to 19-year-old young people in Bradford (UK) to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, it demonstrates the complex entanglements of young people’s lives with international politics and develop a relational conceptualisation of citizenship. It shows that youth citizenship across and beyond national borders evolves from specific lines of connection and disconnection that are actualised and modified inperformances of citizenship identities, giving rise to diverse political positions and dissent, both with the state and between young people. We conclude with some suggestions for translating these ideas into youth citizenship practices
