Citizenship is a term used to describe the relationship of an individual and the state (Dwyer, 2010), in particular the inclusion or exclusion of individuals or groups of individuals in some form or forms of community, as well as what social status that allows individuals to make (or not to make) claims in relation to state-organised services (p. 2). Thus, citizenship is both a status (of relation) and a practice of accepting and performing community duties (on both the part of the state and the individual) (Dwyer, 2010, p. 2).
