Abstract

This project examines the relationship between the local and transnational citizenship experiences of Bangladesh-origin Muslims in Tower Hamlets. The project considers how local political identities influence processes of transnational engagement, and explores how transnational identities and relationships in turn inform local political subjectivity. In recognition of the fact that formal citizenship by itself seldom guarantees that an individual will be able to participate in political life, this project considers citizenship through an examination of ‘substantive’ dimensions of socio-political engagement. This includes examination of the degree to which access to education, employment, housing and healthcare, as well as local political processes and civil society, reflect not only ‘formal statuses’ but ‘effective citizenship’.
