After outlining the concept of citizenship, as conceptualized by T. H. Marshall half a century ago, this chapter reviews the major debates and criticisms that have developed during the subsequent decades and discusses the current changes in societies and social policies that are viewed as especially important for citizenship: labor market changes, the expansion of the consumer sphere, pluralization, migration, and Europeanization. This leads to a focus on the currently dominant turn to policies of social investment and activation, alongside the upgrading of economic concerns. Together, this demonstrates the need to take up more than the extension and reduction of social rights. Issues like the increasing impact of activation and duties and incentives in social policies point to the need to look at the changing landscape of citizenship at large, including concerns with civil and democratic rights.
