Citizenship Goes Public: The Institutional Design of Anational Citizenship
University of Warwick - School of Law
Journal of Political Philosophy, Vol. 17, No. 3, p. 275, 2009
Southampton Law School Research Paper
Citizenship has been an oligarchic good and that this has given rise to a number of important externalities. Citizenship might be best conceived of as a network good with low excludability. Although we tend to believe that being together and doing things together presuppose either a prior cultural cum political homogeneity or the favourable reception of a national culture, I argue that domicile and equal participation in the social, economic and political spheres of the community may provide a better foundation for citizenship than the priority thesis underpinning liberal nationalism and contractarian moral theory. The papers outlines a model of anational citizenship and defends it against possible objections.
