The Global Citizenship Observatory (GLOBALCIT), a global research network committed to fact-based and non-partisan analysis of citizenship laws and electoral rights around the world, is soliciting submissions for the GLOBALCIT – Rainer Bauböck 2024 Essay Award on the Global State of Citizenship, by recent graduates with a master or equivalent degree, current doctoral researchers, or those within 3 years after the award of the doctorate.


Each year, the prize committee asks a question that the essays should try to answer. The question for the 2024 competition is:

How will climate change impact on citizenship? How should citizenship adapt to climate change?


We invite essays of up to 3,000 words. These should include a list of references that is not counted towards the word limit. Essays will explore either scenarios how citizenship is likely to be affected by climate change or discuss how citizenship should be reformed to cope with challenges emerging from the climate crisis.

The essays should be written in English and in a non-technical style that is accessible to a broader public audience (but should follow standard academic citation practices). Essays should be submitted online by 30 April 2024 at 23:59 CEST to This email address is being protected from spambots.
