Citizenship theory explains the cultural, social, political, economic, and legal processes that regulate national membership and belonging. Citizenship’s influence in communication theory has been growing for the past two decades because citizenship theory makes manifest the specific ways in which legal and material systems of society shape cultural processes of basic social participation and enfranchisement. Although the term has been used to address quite a diverse set of questions, the most significant strands of citizenship theory in communication studies treat citizenship as civic practices, as an identity, and as a space for the exercise of political rights.
