6 Social inclusion and active citizenship A deep-felt need It is perhaps not surprising that social inclusion and active citizenship should have been identified as a key theme by several of the regions participating in the PURE project. Even without the impact of the GFC, the past two decades have been a period of considerable change as countries throughout the world, North and South, have come to terms with the implications of new technologies which have transformed the working environment as we have known it, and have led to what David Harvey (1989) has

Introduction Rainer Bauböck's “Democratic Inclusion: A Pluralistic Theory of Citizenship” is characteristically incisive. In this essay and elsewhere (e.g. Bauböck 2003, 2007 ), he has liberated normative political theory from the girdle of territorial boundary conditions. If ever it was, it is obviously no longer possible to posit a world of perfectly segmented national communities. For normative theory to remain

7 Equality and citizenship in global perspective Introduction: the spreading of citizenship? HE PRECEDING chapters of this book have enquired whether a commitment to an egalitarian, democratic form of citizenship is capable of organising and giving shape and force to a variety of egalitarian commitments. Whereas the arguments collected together in the first part of this book criticised the approach taken by prominent participants in the ‘equality of what’ debate, the second part of this book has investigated ways in which we might avoid some of same pitfalls by

Free movement has been central to the European project since the introduction of mobility rights for coal and steel workers in the 1951 European Coal and Steel Community Treaty (ECSC; Treaty of Paris) and the right of EU citizens to live and work anywhere in the common territory has developed as one of the four fundamental freedoms (alongside free movement of goods, services, and capital) that undergird the Single Market (Maas 2005 , 2007 ). Since the Maastricht Treaty, these rights have been enshrined as a key element of EU citizenship, to which some have

This chapter follows the previous discussion of public evaluations of anti-terrorism powers by examining the impact thereof on citizens and citizenship more specifically. Two main findings from our research are discussed. First, that anti-terrorism powers have impacted – variably – on four key aspects of citizenship: rights, participation, identity and duties. As

Rawls on equality

1 The troubled life of social citizenship: Rawls on equality Introduction: social citizenship between Marshall and Rawls N T H I S chapter, I examine John Rawls’s account of citizenship in a just society. Rawls’s account of justice has been hugely influential, although relatively little attention has been focused on Rawls’s theory as a theory of citizenship. But this chapter addresses Rawls’s work as precisely that: an attempt to ground a satisfactory version of free and equal citizenship, by drawing on ideas and values that are deeply embedded in Western

a stated aim of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is to ‘leave no one behind’, stateless persons are often unaccounted for in the implementation and monitoring of global development efforts. As a result, they can be left out entirely. Second, presuming citizenship means that policies ostensibly contributing to the global governance of migration target

The location of Koreans and Taiwanese in the imperial order

Recent scholarship on the culture of colonialism has brought a new focus on understanding the dynamics of coloniser and colonised through examination of issues of citizenship. Ann Stoler’s work, for example, has illustrated the porous boundary between European colonisers and colonised natives in several studies of citizenship debates for mixed-blood individuals in such places as Java and Indochina in the first half of the twentieth century. 1 The French empire, with its assimilationist mission and cultural notions of

get quarters and districts of towns and cities that get taken over by one particular group… 2 Yet the picture of migration, citizenship, and rights in the city of Peterborough and its surrounding rural areas is, unsurprisingly, more complex than its reputation as a major reception city for international migrant workers, or Farage's portrayal of the consequences of this, might suggest. In this chapter I argue, through the example of Peterborough, that a focus on

investigate the clash between these two meanings of territoriality, the chapter highlights the case of trans-border minorities and minorities that have been present on a territory before current borders were formed. It specifically examines how states move away from the ideal of ethical territoriality and deem not only migrants but some of their citizens as having ‘less-than-complete-membership’ (Bosniak, 2007 : 392) with a position closer to that of foreign residents. Echoing Nyers' ( 2019 ) theory on irregular citizenship, the chapter examines acts of sovereignty (Nyers
