“Regluating Belonging: Citizenship, Exclusion and the Role of Law” was the topic of a keynote lecture Barbara von Rütte presented at the international and interdisciplinary conference “Shifting Orders: Belonging in Transition.” The event, which approached the topic of belonging from six topical angles, took place on 14-16 October 2021 in Tübingen.

The conference addressed the topic of belonging in six sessions, each reflecting on a specific aspect of the phenomenon, namely property, intersectionality, situatedness, the right to belonging/not-belonging, emplacement, and religion. Barbara von Rütte's keynote address opened the session “The Right of Belonging / Not-Belonging in the Global Encounter.” The conference “Regluating Belonging: Citizenship, Exclusion and the Role of Law” was organized by the Center for Interdisciplinary and Intercultural Studies of the University of Tübingen.
