The work suggests that the diverse responses to the royal tours of the nineteenth century demonstrate how a multi-centred imperial culture was forged in the empire and was constantly made and remade

citizens to help themselves (‘a hand up and not a hand-out’), the strategy is one of displacing, from the level of the State to that of the individual, some of the contemporary problems of government. Morrison suggests that a key objective of New Labour’s ‘rights and responsibilities’ citizenship discourse is that citizens are to be equipped as competent members of the global

discourse, responsibilities for their ‘achievement’ are usually laid at the door of individual nation-states, leaving global inequalities broadly untouched. All of this is not to say that the vision of global citizen- [ 166 ] Equality and citizenship in global perspective ship rights and responsibilities has no critical appeal, but it does imply that we need to be very cautious about some of the eager declarations of cosmopolitan theorists. Section 2 turns to the ‘politics’ of a putative global citizenship regime, and specifically the character of the much

foundational elements of the New Commonwealth. The Aboriginal people were largely excluded from the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, while the formal adoption of the ‘White Australia’ policy was designed to create an effective barrier against both Asian and Japanese ‘invasion’ from ‘the north’ and ‘non-white’ immigration in general. The Australian labour movement, especially the precocious ALP , played a major role in shaping the characteristics and early development of the New Commonwealth. As such, questions of nation

or perceived potential terrorist. But it is not only the rights and treatment of the incomer that are at stake, as restrictions that start out reserved for groups perceived as threatening quickly spread to the population as a whole, infringing everyone’s individual liberties and freedom of speech. Rights and responsibilities are often paired in populist discourse, but Zetter 9780719079740_A02.qxd Introduction 22/2/10 15:09 Page 3 3 casts them in a different light, when he follows the rights lost in a ‘persecutory’ environment with the moral obligations that

Every monastery had an official patron, the legal (and sometimes hereditary) descendant of its first founder, with particular rights and responsibilities regarding the house. In return for prayers, hospitality and perhaps some say in the monastery’s affairs, the patron was expected to provide protection and support at times of need. Although many houses found

that people often did not get the accommodation they were entitled to and had paid for. During the NEP period, much requisitioned housing returned to private hands. The state retained some control, particularly with regard to determining what rent should be paid and what rules adhered to. However, the queries sent to magazines and the cases brought before the courts reveal enormous confusion over housing rights and responsibilities. Many people turned to the authorities for help in resolving problems in what would once have been considered their ‘private’ lives. This

a neglected subject. Most studies on neutrality can be located in the fields of law and history, with the focus leaning heavily towards legal definitions and the formal rights and responsibilities of neutral states (Grant-Bailey, 1944 ; Henkin et al., 1987; Jessup and Deák, 1935; Leonard, 1988 ). Historical texts on the subject of neutrality largely read as shameful war stories, with

Rather it has stressed the productive potential of all and the right of all to participate on terms adapted to individual circumstance, and circumstances defined by the course of the life cycle. I believe this is a perfectly viable and desirable strategy also for the future of
