AIHWA ONG FLEXIBLE CITIZENSHIP PDF

Was it for my thesis that I purchased this book or was it for a class that I took? Globalization is the standard operating procedure now, people and families do what they need to do to make their money and live their comfortable and sometimes excessive lifestyles. The mighty dollar has priority over democracy. For instance, how are differentiated and competing notions of citizenship in the United States emerging within a dominant frame of American neoliberalism? What are the subjectivities associated with being stuck in particular U.

Are nation-states being transformed by globalization into a single globalized economy? Do global cultural forces herald a postnational millennium? Tying ethnography to structural analysis, Flexible Citizenship explores such questions with a focus on the links between the cultural logics of human action and on economic and political processes within the Asia-Pacific, including the impact of these forces on women and family life.

Explaining how intensified travel, communications, and mass media have created a transnational Chinese public, Aihwa Ong argues that previous studies have mistakenly viewed transnationality as necessarily detrimental to the nation-state and have ignored individual agency in the large-scale flow of people, images, and cultural forces across borders.

She describes how political upheavals and global markets have induced Asian investors, in particular, to blend strategies of migration and of capital accumulation and how these transnational subjects have come to symbolize both the fluidity of capital and the tension between national and personal identities.

This pioneering investigation of transnational cultural forms will appeal to those in anthropology, globalization studies, postcolonial studies, history, Asian studies, Marxist theory, and cultural studies. Ong writes an anthropological text with the fluidity of a storyteller, cleverly combining academic analysis with contemporary media examples and personal anecdotes.

It is interesting, well written and has many insights to offer both sinologists and students of citizenship theory. It sets a benchmark for the integration of globalization theory with specific ethnographic analysis. As with any well-written analytical work based in solid empirical examples, its greatest strength—whether one agrees or disagrees with any particular argument—lies in its ability to continually stimulate and challenge the reader. Flexible Citizenship is a valuable contribution to the literature on globalization and the cultural-economic dynamics of Asia.

In it Ong offers an analysis of states and citizenship regimes in Asia that is remarkable in its theoretical and empirical breadth. Social scientists and Asia specialists alike will find the work indispensable, both for its redefinition of analytic terrain and for the new directions of research it suggests.

Flexible citizenship

Aihwa Ong. Grappling with the meanings of citizenship in late capitalism, Ong coins the term "flexible citizenship" to refer to the cultural logics of capitalist accumulation, travel, and displacements that induce subjects to respond fluidly and opportunistically to changing political-economic conditions p. Far from being constructed only out of the identity politics or agency enacted by Chinese subjects, these cultural logics and interrelated economic rationalities are shaped by the nation-state, the market, and the family. The three regimes, however, do not weigh equally.

Background[ edit ] Flexible citizenship is a form of citizenship that redefines the traditional citizenship view based on membership of political rights and participation within a nation state. Therefore, people arguably will choose their citizenship based on economic reasons rather than political rights or participation within what nation state they reside. Due to the growing changes and increasing levels of technology in the world, flexible citizenship has become applicable to many migrants within many different states. Globalization has been the primary reason for the development of various new forms of citizenship. Due to Globalization, the access to borders has become increasingly easier for people to move from nation to nation. Due to the great migrations and interconnected borders that have arisen from globalization, traditional citizenship has been challenged by various scholars who have brought forth new thoughts of how citizenship should work in the contemporary world. For instance, the Cosmopolitan scholars such as Nussbaum and Appiah and Post-national citizenship theorists have challenged the view of looking towards citizenship as purely based on rights to political participation.
