About the Author

Lois Harder is Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and a professor of political science at the University of Victoria.


"Canadian Club provides a fascinating analysis of laws and court cases revealing conundrums of citizenship policies. Harder's even-handed attention to prevailing liberal and communitarian theories of citizenship inform her illuminating queer, feminist critique. A great addition to any syllabus on citizenship and mobility." - Jacqueline Stevens, Professor, Department of Political Science, Northwestern University

"Lois Harder situates the under-explored history of Canadian citizenship against contemporary theoretical, comparative, and critical scholarship. Her rich and nuanced case studies are revealing, provocative, and wonderfully illuminating." - Audrey Macklin, Professor and Chair in Human Rights Law, University of Toronto

"We tend to take it for granted that citizenship is acquired at birth in the territory or through descent. Tracing changes to Canadian birthright rules over time, Lois Harder demonstrates that birthright citizenship has always been an unstable political and legal construct. This is an exciting and provocative book that will greatly stimulate the debate on the future of birthright citizenship." - Rainer Bauböck, Professor, Global Governance Programme, European University Institute, Florence
