About Engin Isin
Engin Isin holds a Chair in Citizenship and is Professor of Politics in Politics and International Studies (POLIS) at the Faculty of Social Sciences, The Open University. He has published widely on the politics of citizenship. From Cities Without Citizens (1992) to Being Political (2002) his concern has been to document historically how citizenship has been contested by its 'others' (strangers, outsiders, aliens). His most recent book Citizens Without Frontiers (2012) elaborates on the themes of his Inaugural Lecture. His current and past research projects include Oecumene: Citizenship after Orientalism and Enacting European Citizenship (ENACT).
