Millions of people around the Asia-Pacific region are suffering from the twin effects of globalization and exclusionary nationality laws. Some are migrant workers without rights in host countries; some are indigenous peoples who are not accorded their full rights in their own countries. Yet others are refugees escaping from regimes that have no respect for human rights. This collection of essays discusses the ways in which citizenship laws in the region might be made consistent with human dignity. It considers the connectedness of national belonging and citizenship in East and Southeast Asian and Pacific states including Australia; the impact of mass migration, cultural homogenization and other effects of globalization on notions of citizenship; and possibilities of commitment to a transnational democratic citizenship that respects cultural difference.

'A far reaching and important contribution to the growing interest in the problems of citizenship in a global environment. The volume clearly identifies and debates the inherent ambiguities and contradictions of citizenship in the modern world. Although in recent years there has been a robust flurry of publications in the field of citizenship studies, few have concentrated so specifically on the Asia Pacific region. The volume contains a rich offering of papers on Malaya, Philippines, China, Tonga, New Caladonia and Pacific Islands.

Finally, the book is clearly at the cutting edge of the emerging debate about the place for and possibility of national citizenship within a framework of political globalization. There is a clear need to address the questions of human rights in relation to citizenship as a legal status within the nation-state in a globalized world where state sovereignty is being eroded.' - Brian S. Turner, Deakin University Australia

'This volume is an outstanding contribution to the international literature on Citizenship internationally. The writing is clear and accessible and many of the contributions are of the highest academic order. Anyone interested in either Citizenship or Globalization should read the book.' - Professor Wayne Hudson, National Institute for Law, Ethics and Public Affairs, Griffith University, Australia
