The book is organized around three interlinked thematic areas, focusing on sexual citizenship, nationalism and international borders (Part 1)- sexuality and race (Part 2)- and sexuality and religion (Part 3). In revisiting notions of sexual citizenship and belonging, contributors engage with topical debates about sexual nationalism, or the construction of western/European nations as exceptional in terms of attitudes to sexual and gender equality vis-a-vis an uncivilized, racialized Other.The collection explores macro-level perspectives by attending to the geopolitical and socio-legal structures within which competing claims to citizenship and belonging are played out- at the same time, micro-level perspectives are utilized to explore the interplay between sexuality and race, nation, ethnicity and religious identities. Geographically, the collection has a prevalently European focus, yet contributions explore a range of trans-national spatial dimensions that exceed the boundaries of Europe and of European nation-states.
