Modern citizenship is not simply a legal status. It also includes political and social recognition as well as economic distribution. Modern citizenship is deeply embedded in various routes to nation-statehood. The nature of the Greek and Turkish nationalisms had a major bearing on their respective citizenship practices. The proposed article not only contains a comparison of national identity formation in Greece and Turkey but also portrays how the different trajectories to nation-statehood in Greece and Turkey are reflected in their respective conceptualizations of citizenship.
