- Crisis, cosmopolitianism and citizenship: living in a local risk society in Bali
- Connor and Vickers argue that Indonesians position themselves in a world of images, power relations, and commodity flows through forms of group-belonging which range from loose identification to formal ascribed roles. Citizenship is one of these forms of participation, but the contradictions between cosmopolitan membership of a loosely defined global society, nationally oriented legal identity, and more restricted local civil obligations are revealed on Bali through the context of a multidimensional crisis. In a situation such as Indonesia's, where national citizenship relies on a minimal recognition of formal rights and very little responsibility, the sense of crisis does not automatically lead towards a global civil society.
