The interdisciplinary research network Migration as a legal and political process kindly invites you to a seminar with Associate Professor Enrico Gargiulo from the University of Bologna.
The talk analyses residency, a form of municipal membership that plays a strategic role in administrative processes in Italy. Residency is a two-faced juridical status: a means for exercising rights and moving freely within a state territory and, at the same time, a tool of control that operates through identification and registration. Residency is investigated both historically and theoretically, to show that the status of resident is a special kind of border, namely, a status border, which draws the lines of local citizenship. By explaining that the mechanisms of exclusion from residency work as administrative barriers, and showing their aims and effects in terms of civic stratification and differential inclusion, this work contributes to the debates on local citizenship, borders, and discretionary power.
Associate Professor Enrico Gargiulo from the University of Bologna.
The seminar is based on Prof. Gargiulo’s latest book available here: Invisible Borders: Administrative Barriers and Citizenship in Italian Municipalities
