Resettler Society: Private Refugee Sponsorship and Citizenship 

How does the project of making refugees into citizens remake the citizenship of those who undertake it? That question animates an empirical research project focused on private refugee  sponsors. I will introduce the conceptual framework that structures the inquiry, and consider (provisionally) cosmopolitanism as motive for sponsorship, privatization as mode, and citizenship as effect.
