The book, titled as The Concept of Citizenship in International Relations  by Pavithra Jayawardena, provides an introduction to citizenship, highlighting its relevance to the field of International Relations (IR) in interrogating the IR concepts such as the nation-state, individual, international system, and territoriality. However, the book is not limited to IR and contains a multidisciplinary literature review on the matter.

First chapter of this book provides an introduction to the relevance of citizenship in International Relations (IR), followed by an overview of citizenship, ranging from the era of city-states up to contemporary times. Second chapter offers brief introductions to different categories of citizenship. Third chapter specifically pays attention to the (ir)relevance of traditional emphasis of citizenship on territoriality. The book intends to generate some interest among undergraduates who study IR, Political Science, and History to further study and research the different dimensions of citizenship.
