Abstract

[Extract]
How we approach, value, use, study, learn and teach law, refer to- and incorporate law’s transformations, depends on many factors, one of them being to identify emerging fields of relevance. Transcending borders, globalization, climate change, pollution or the pandemic may pose as penultimate collective global-commons issues, as agents for global citizenship legal discourse, reform and education. At the same time, citizenship is becoming transformed, such as through individualist-mercantilist -immediately issued- ‘passports-for-sale’, introducing space-less and time-less reductions of citizenship as passports for enhanced visa free travel or as Plan-B emergency relocation options. Migrations can be voluntary, involuntary, and anything in-between, part of upward economic-strategic relocations, political-, health-, climate- and humanitarian crisis-induced, within-, but also vested outside the state’s law of residence or citizenship. Local-global migrations pose as both disruptive yet
potentially creative forces that require a re-thinking of the fundamental precepts and conditions of municipally framed membership law.
