This document was prepared by the a working group, Local-Global Citizenship Engagements, in preparation for a workshop for its members to be held in Brighton, England Sept. 25 to Sept. 27, 2006. This working group asked how citizens perceive and engage with global processes and in turn, what impact global processes actually have on the meanings and practices of citizenship, given their locations in diverse historical and cultural settings. This document was commissioned to provide an overview of some of the most prominent academic debates relevant to this research agenda, focusing on authors from UK and U.S. institutions. An update to the literature review, included in this document as an annex, was carried out by research assistant Greg Barrett in 2009.
