Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance
The Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance (CCIG) is a University designated Centre of Research Excellence
The programme places emphasis on how social methods (as part of social life) play a role in sustaining, abandoning or transforming people, things and places.
Currently, the programme studies how citizenship is not simply a set of rights but is enacted by acts of non-citizens. It studies how insecurities are not problems waiting to be fixed but are created by practices of security. In these ways Enactments addresses the intertwinement of methods, people, things and places and what it means to change, innovate, and challenge social and political orders.
The programme recently held its first Forum, Enacting Worlds, with a keynote lecture on 'Enacting values: on good and bad food' by Annemarie Mol, Professor of Anthropology of the Body, University of Amsterdam.
The programme currently hosts the following related Projects:
