Umut Erel draws on the life-stories of migrant women from Turkey in Germany and Britain and proposes that there are three key moments in re-conceptualizing migrant women’s citizenship: 1) recognizing migrant women as subjects with agency, 2) substantiating capacities as political, cultural, working subjects, etc. 3) becoming rights-claiming subjects. By taking migrant women’s self-presentations as a starting point the chapter proposes that these subjugated knowledges can reframe the categories and boundaries through which we understand issues of citizenship within Europe itself.

Keywords:   Migrant women, Turkey, Agency, Rights-claiming, Subjugated knowledges
