Ambidextrous Political Engagement?: The Case of Canada-US Dual Citizens
Dynamics of migration and increasing cases of international marriages are transforming the conceptualization and practice of citizenship. While dual citizenship, in theory, permits simultaneous involvement in two countries, barriers to achieving symmetrical political involvement exist. This study specifically investigates individuals holding both US and Canadian citizenship, examining their political engagement in a cross-border context. The original survey data captures various dimensions of citizenship within this population, including aspects such as citizenship as socialization, citizenship as an identity claim, and citizenship as political participation. The findings reveal the extent of ‘ambidextrous’ political engagement among dual citizens. Furthermore, the study explores whether political participation is activated during the salient and critical elections and whether it persists once activated. The study identifies the potential for a positive-sum approach to political engagement and offers insights into what to expect in a globalizing world where an increasing number of citizens are forming multiple ties with more than one country and exercising their rights as citizens.
Identity, Entitlement, and Policy Preferences in Canada
While citizenship connotes a legal tie between a self and a state, there is a variation in how closely one aligns the state to one’s self-concept. This study develops a Canadian identity implicit association test (CI-IAT) that measures the state attachment at the subconscious level. This psychological construct reflects the use of a different memory system and circumvents the issue of social desirability. The study explores whether this internalization of the state within the self varies systematically by different facets of citizenship (i.e. birthplace, immigrant background, country of residence, race/ethnicity, and language). Furthermore, the study shows the relationship between the level of Canadian identity and how individuals see themselves and others as deserving the full inventory of citizenship entitlements. The empirical evidence of the study contributes to a deeper understanding of how individuals perceive themselves as part of the political community and the basis of their policy preferences.
