This chapter examines the view of English author Richard Jebb on imperial citizenship. Unlike Lionel Curtis and John Buchan, Jebb remained convinced that Britain must continue to be the centre of the Empire and he envisioned the Empire less as a federation and more as a confederation. He also lobbied for a greater regard for colonial nationalism as the buttress of imperial unity, particularly through a common imperial naturalisation process, and those of ‘colonial autonomy’. This chapter also comments on Jebb's Studies in Colonial Nationalism and suggests that he was a colonial nationalist.
