International migration has reconceptualised the notion of membership, in that the demos nowadays is no longer confined to the territorial borders of nation-states. Rather, it stretches beyond them, through a cobweb of transnational networks created by individuals belonging to several polities. Citizenship, as an articulation of this belonging, is likely to move in a direction that will allow it to reflect the tendency of individuals drawing membership rights from multiple polities, and international human rights institutions.
