The Oecumene Project team members discuss their fi rst collective publication, a double Special Issue of
Citizenship Studies entitled, ‘Citizenship After Orientalism: An Unfinished Project.’ Published half way through
the European Research Council funded project, this is its fi rst statement on how citizenship has been
understood as a narrowly western concept and what techniques researchers can use to write about citizenship after orientalism. With a global reach and a blend of approaches from anthropology to legal studies, from history to sociology, from postcolonial to European studies, the Special Issue shows how widely orientalism has shaped our understanding of the citizen and how innovative the fi eld can be once we attempt to write about citizenship after orientalism.
