about the project

Even though citizenship rights have expanded in meaningful ways, much of the standard thinking still views citizenship as one-dimensional, tied exclusively to legal status that is conferred at the national level.

This project provides a framework to understand the expansion of citizenship rights along five key dimensions, as well as a roadmap to track, measure, and expand these rights at both the federal and state level.
