  Migrant Heroes: Nationalism, Citizenship and the Politics of Filipino Migrant Labor
 
 
Titel: Migrant Heroes: Nationalism, Citizenship and the Politics of Filipino Migrant Labor
Auteur: Rodriguez, Robyn M.
Verschenen in: Citizenship studies
Paginering: Jaargang 6 (2002) nr. 3 pagina's 341-356
Jaar: 2002-09-01
Inhoud: The Philippine state has popularized the idea of Filipino migrants as the country's 'new national heroes', critically transforming notions of Filipino citizenship and citizenship struggles. As 'new national heroes', migrant workers are extended particular kinds of economic and welfare rights while they are abroad even as they are obligated to perform particular kinds of duties to their home state. The author suggests that this transnationalized citizenship, and the obligations attached to it, becomes a mode by which the Philippine state ultimately disciplines Filipino migrant labor as flexible labor. However, as citizenship is extended to Filipinos beyond the borders of the Philippines, the globalization of citizenship rights has enabled migrants to make various kinds of claims on the Philippine state. Indeed, these new transnational political struggles have given rise not only to migrants' demands for rights, but to alternative nationalisms and novel notions of citizenship that challenge the Philippine state's role in the export and commodification of migrant workers.
