given voting rights as citizens of that state. The example he cites is Algeria prior to independence in 1962, but one could also instance Ireland during the nineteenth century, when its voters sent MPs to Westminster. If we assume (contrary to fact) that every adult member of those territories had been awarded voting rights, then ASC would have been fully satisfied. As Bauböck says, the lesson here is that “a democratic principle of membership

alternative principle on the basis of which a demos can constitute itself. But a further issue arises – that it is not clear that all forms of subjection justify inclusion in the demos. Bauböck poses the problem cases of the U.S. occupation of post-World War 2 Germany and the Algerian independence movement. In these cases, he points out, the subjection involved could not be seen as requiring or being remediated by inclusion in the

, after the assassination of the Congolese prime minister Patrice Lumumba, the SKJ called a rally in Belgrade attended by 150,000, with a breakaway demonstration of 30,000 occupying the Belgian embassy and clashing with police (Kilibarda 2010 : 33; Robertson 2015 : 112). Tito, meanwhile, espoused race-blind anti-colonialism: meeting Algeria's Ahmed Ben Bella in 1964, minutes record, he ‘railed against the suggestion that “all blacks are good and all whites bad” and [stated that] “the wrongheaded idea of divisions according to race merits the strongest censure

1993 (Li 2016 : 384–5), and at war's end, though Dayton required all foreign volunteers to leave, offered Bosnian citizenship to foreign fighters who had married Bosnian women or (like Libyans and Algerians) claimed they had no safe country to return to (Mustapha 2013 : 746). Around this formalised, militarised production of transnational Islamist identity were much more diverse fundraising and consciousness-raising networks among Western Muslims.

of equal citizenship in the imperium (as Bauböck's example of France and Algeria makes clear). This argument strikes me as providing compelling reason for ASC to be rejected as the principle for determining claims to membership of the people who have a right to collective self-government in such contexts. This is why I endorse Bauböck's argument that ACS best identifies those who have a claim to membership of a self-governing people, a

Algeria, where – to cut matters short rather drastically – he is taught by humble people the limitations of the scholastic point of view. Now, as J.D. Barbour has argued, the travel narrative is an established autobiographical figure, used to convey a sense of sincerity – that one’s choices are objective rather than simply aesthetic. 67 Bourdieu’s Algerian experience was less simply either a period of ‘fieldwork’ or of ‘national service’ than – to continue with the apposite religious vocabulary here – a sort of spiritual baptism, a conversion-experience to the ethic of

Entanglements and ambiguities

implicit oppositions between the “traditional” and the “modern,” collective rhythms and individual action, and “space” and “time.” Here, in framing time through agent-oriented filters, Bourdieu spatially-temporally contrasts precapitalist traditional Algeria as marked by “foresight” only of the immediate future (already “implicit in the directly perceived present”) with capitalist modern societies where

Split or independent Ragusa? The opulence of Ottoman Sarajevo? Would Yugoslavia's diplomatic and military assistance to the Algerian Front de Libération Nationale fighting French colonial forces retrospectively exempt the region from complicity in such a legacy? Or did the structures of knowledge, power and not-needing-to-know that have constituted ‘global white ignorance’ (Mills 2015 ) since the beginning of Atlantic slavery and the colonisation of the Americas permeate the Yugoslav region – and the rest of state socialist Europe – as they did the rest of the globe

A pluralist theory of citizenship

contexts. Until independence in 1962, Algeria was legally incorporated into the French territory. If ASC is interpreted as a claim for membership inclusion, then the colonial subjects in Algeria had a right to equal citizenship in France rather than to independence from France. A democratic principle of membership must link individual inclusion claims to collective self-government claims in order to avoid a status quo bias in favour of unjust

Prise de l’école de Madhubaï (1984), L’Histoire terrible mais inachevée de Norodom Sihanouk Roi du Cambodge (1985), and L’Indiade ou l’Inde de leurs rêves (1987). And, in the same years, she published six ‘fictions’ and three critical collections of essays including the ‘fiction’ which will form the basis of the analysis of love in Chapter 5, The Book of Promethea. The same diversity of form and genre continues to characterise her current output as she has returned in her prose fictions to the Algeria of her childhood and to reflections on her family of origin
