The Globalizing State

The Globalizing State

Remaking Sovereignty and Citizenship

(p.40) 2 The Globalizing State
Contesting Citizenship

Anne McNevin

Columbia University Press

Neoliberalism can be understood both as an ideology driving certain kinds of policy practice and, in Foucauldian terms, as a rationality of governance that inhabits the logic of government and the conduct of the self. In each of these respects, neoliberalism has shaped the terms in which states conduct their sovereign business and the terms in which they have engaged with the possibilities of a globalizing age. This chapter shows how sovereignty and citizenship are being remade in globalizing states with respect to neoliberalism, and how this process involves a new terrain of sovereign practice. This new terrain manifests in offshore markets, special economic zones (SEZs), and networked global cities where irregular migrants, among others, operate within new global hierarchies of mobility, labor, and status. In this context, new techniques of marginalization and modes of resistance arise—none of which necessarily reflects a conventional citizen/noncitizen divide.

Keywords:   neoliberalism, globalization, globalizing state, sovereignty, irregular migrants, citizenship, marginalization, offshore markets, special economic zones, networked global cities
