It is a general understanding that the advanced economies are currently undergoing a fundamental transformation into knowledge-based societies. There is a firm belief that this is based on the development of high-tech industries. Correspondingly, in this scenario low-tech sectors appear to be less important. A critique of this widely held belief is the starting point of this book. It is often overlooked that many of the current innovation activities are linked to developments inside the realm of low-tech. Thus the general objective of the book is to contribute to a discussion concerning the relevance of low-tech industries for industrial innovativeness in the emerging knowledge economy.

This chapter takes a holistic approach to citizenship, comprehensively considering: membership; the relationship between citizens and their governors; the role of active citizenship and civic associationism; and the concept of citizenship as a ‘project’ that brings citizens together under a shared telos. In so doing, the chapter argues that citizens can engage with processes of production and transformation in contemporary democracies. Citizenship is at the core of a plurality of relations across the public and policy spheres, bringing together elites and institutions in proximity with civil society and the broader public. Focusing on the migration field, while critically engaging postnationalism scholarship, the chapter takes a clear stance against the idea of national citizenship as ‘identities without rights’; not only does decision-making over citizenship tap into the most traditional prerogatives of national sovereignty, but it also corroborates the actual experiences of solidarity and exchanges among movements, civil society, and individual citizens themselves.
