In preceding chapters, we explored the different ways in which citizens conceive of security and insecurity, and the ways in which anti-terrorism powers are interpreted and evaluated by UK publics, including in relation to their impacts on aspects of citizenship. In this chapter, we now bring these analyses together, examining the relationship between conceptions or

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

in A new imperative

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

Community, rights, values

8 Gewirth: community, rights, values It was suggested very much earlier in this work that the dominating themes in the debates about citizenship of the EU were whether it could become a practical political reality as well as a formal legal reality, and whether it could call on – or itself foster – the kinds of attitudinal and motivational features that are associated with effective citizenship. Having looked, through Chapters 5 to 7, at the implications of rational agency for politics in general and for the prospects of a substantive citizenship in the EU in

And if the citizens are to be treated as free, on what principled basis could, or should, political institutions impose policies that lead people to live their lives one way – the way the polity favours – rather than some other way that the individuals or groups may themselves favour, or would have favoured had they been left to their own devices? We can see now that one crux of the problem of reconciling autonomy with freedom and in resolving or at least mitigating the tensions between

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

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

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

In this chapter I argue, through the example of Peterborough, that a focus on

Intellectual responses

2 ‘Cultural difference’, citizenship and young people: intellectual responses Introduction While it may be exaggerated to argue that young people of North African origin are simply ‘the products’ of the political and intellectual climate of the last thirty years, their attitudes will nevertheless have been informed by the ambient political and intellectual discourses, their representations and their polemics. In terms of intellectual discourse, we can distinguish three main areas of academic debate concerning North African immigration in contemporary France
