Today, after the determination of citizenship has become a monopoly of states, cities reclaim citizenship for themselves.

In this Lecture, Professor Coeckelbergh argues that giving robots citizenship seems almost an insult to the very concept of citizenship. And yet, a more relational approach that takes seriously the role of the human and social appearance of robots could help us to understand why people may construct the robot’s political status in more “thick” terms in the near future.

Birthright citizenship (jus soli) is a simple, easily-administered rule to facilitate integration of illegally-present children who are likely to spend most or all of their lives in a country. In the U.S., however, automatic citizenship at birth for such children is deeply problematic for both constitutional and political reasons. The lecture explores what the U.S. experience can teach European policy-makers.
