Denizens on the Erosion of Citizenship

There is a need for a supplementary concept of ‘denizenship’ to illustrate changes to and erosion of social citizenship as famously described by T. H. Marshall. An aim of B. S. Turner is to construct a more theoretically developed idea of what the concept of a ‘denizen’ means in sociological terms. There is a general convergence between citizenship and denizenship. Denizenship provides a possible supplement to the various terms as flexible citizenship, semi-citizenship, or precariat to describe the attenuated social and economic status of citizens under regimes of austerity and diminished rights and opportunities. As the life chances of citizens decline, they come to resemble denizens. As a result of socio-economic changes, the modern citizen is increasingly merely a denizen with thin, fragmented, and fragile social bonds to the public world. The corrosion of the social, economic, political, and legal framework of citizenship offers a new slogan: ‘we are all denizens now.’
