Dieter Gosewinkel gives a public lecture on 'Geschichte und gegenwärtige Bedeutung der Staatsbürgerschaft in Europa seit dem 20. Jahrhundert'

Citizenship was the sign of political affiliation in Europe in the 20th century. It decided about the protection and freedom of a person and thus about his life and survival chances. In this lecture (and the following workshop), it serves as a probe of a historical analysis of Society in order to illuminate inclusion and exclusion in Europe in the 20th and 21st century. The starting point is citizenship as a legal institution which has been increasingly shaping since the turn of the 19th century and which achieved high political and practical symbolic power and effect in European and non-European societies.
