Portrait of Citizenship Regimes Dynamics: Scientific Polarisation and Consensus in the Field

Presenters: Dr Eva Fernández G. G. (University of Geneva, Switzerland) & Dr Lukas Lehotský (Masaryk University, Czech Republic)

Tuesday 10th May at 16:00-17:00 UK time

This article presents a bibliometric analysis of the scientific use and evolution of the field of citizenship regimes within broader studies on citizenship. It applies a combined approach of textual content and graphical analysis to study consensus formation and polarization in this scientific field. Citizenship regimes refer to prevailing conceptions of the boundaries and rules (formal or informal) for accessing the political community and the full rights of citizenship. However, systematic variations in their dimensions and typologies have influenced their theoretical and empirical associations with other research topics. Despite this, there is a scarcity of research on how research trajectories in the field have evolved over time, leading to consensus formation, polarization, or benign contestations within specialized scientific areas. Our findings suggest a relevant but stable degree of modularity (community detection) in the bibliographic and topic networks structuring the field of citizenship regime over the last 30 years of research. Our review shows a relevant specialization in the field with a flat core research area, which has low academic polarization, but branches across disciplines by specific topics aimed at examining a particular dimension of citizenship.
