Forschungsthema am Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften:
»Side by Side: On the Politics of Territorial Presence«

In a globalized context, unprecedented levels of migration and mobility have led to an increasing mismatch between resident and citizen populations: more and more people live on the territory of a state other than their own. My project investigates the political standing of these non-citizen residents. Specifically, I want to ask which (if any) rights and obligations they have merely by virtue of their continued physical presence – for instance a right to stay, to participate democratically or even to acquire citizenship. My aim is to approach this issue from a »place-related« perspective, that is, by means of exploring the more general question in how far the spatial configuration of people at a particular geographic location co-determines what we owe to each other.
