The Citizenship, ‘Race’ and Belonging (CRaB) Research Network is an interdisciplinary group of scholars interested in issues around citizenship, ‘race’ and belonging in the widest sense. We are interested in both historical and current questions about who is considered to belong within the nation-state, why, and how those who have been deemed ‘outsiders’ have been perceived and treated.

The core collective goals enhance current research on citizenship, 'race' and belonging as follows:

Empirically

to research the lived experiences of citizenship, ‘race’ and belonging, drawing on interdisciplinary methodologies from sociology, history, cultural studies, international development and political science.

Theoretically

to understand the dynamics that different theoretical strands can bring to understanding citizenship, ‘race’ and belonging, and to build an interdisciplinary network at the University of Portsmouth that also reaches out to international partners.

Practically

to support each other in future publishing and external funding endeavours through peer review, discussion and advice on journal/book proposal submissions and funding bids; and to look at how academic research can create meaningful change in policy and practice interest areas such as social inclusion and integration, tackling racism, and notions of belonging and well-being.
