Abstract [en]

In this paper I discuss a definition of citizenship, participation and the political for better understanding and analyses of political participations in ICT societies. I approach the topic from a comprehensive understanding of developments both in society and technology, how they mutually reinforce each other and are best understood in tandem. Discussions of citizenship are concerned with normative macro-perspectives of the good society and how it should be organized often departing from micro-empirical studies of how society and political participation are changing. This combination of macro- and micro-perspectives together with its multi- and interdisciplinary appeal, makes citizenship ideal to approach from a transdisciplinary point of departure. In the paper I propose an understanding of citizenship as participation in political communities; ensembles of people addressing the organization of society and making sense of this address in a similar way. Citizenships are enacted in relation to the authority of political communities, an authority that streams out of the values and norms that are constructed and renegotiated through the participation of its members. Hence, it is both through participation that citizens and political communities are made. The paper ends with a proposal of how to categorize online participation and citizenship(s) in ICT societies
