Summary, in English

The point of departure in this chapter is that citizenship is constructed and re-constructed through both formal regulations and societal practice. Hence citizenship is understood both as formal relations between the state and the individual, manifested in constitutional rights and duties, but also as a social citizenship that depends on prevailing power relations. Being included as a citizen thus concerns, on the one hand, having equal constitutional rights and duties as others in society, and, on the other, having these rights in practice―in other words―having an experienced substantive citizenship.

This chapter aims to explore different aspects of citizenship theories that contribute to an analysis of the construction of citizens and the experience of citizenship. It illustrates how these theories can

help us understand the opportunities and obstacles encountered by unemployed immigrant women who wish to become citizens in practice.
